Tedx Talk Eus van Someren


Insomnia, chronic poor sleep, is the most common health complaint among the population in general and is a major risk factor for psychiatric disorders. Yet, our understanding of underlying brain mechanisms is still limited. Why is it that some people fall asleep so easily, while others toss and turn all night? Eus van Someren, head of the Department of Sleep and Cognition at the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, will explore our differing relationships with sleep.
