Since my day job is in EEG/Sleep Technical Support, this course was somewhat relevant to my day-to-day world. Although my role is more of an IT-type position dealing with hardware/software/networking issues, it is extremely interesting to learn the science behind what our equipment does and how it can benefit people with sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.

Craig Heller presents a series of 24 thirty-minute lectures that cover a wide variety of sleep topics, including circadian rhythms, the ...more

Fascinating - although it gets into physiology and neurochemistry so you can't give this a half- way read, you must commit your brain to focusing.
