The objective of this course is to give students the most up-to-date information on the biological, personal, and societal relevance of sleep. Personal relevance is emphasized by the fact that the single best predictor of daytime performance is the quality of the previous night's sleep. The brain actively generates sleep, and the first section of the course is an overview of the neurobiological basis of sleep control. The course provides cellular-level understanding of how sleep deprivation, jet lag, and substances such as alcohol, ,caffeine, and nicotine alter sleep and wakefulness. The second section of the course covers sleep-dependent changes in physiology and sleep disorders medicine. Particular emphasis will be placed on disorders of excessive sleepiness, insomnia, and sleep-dependent changes in autonomic control. Chronic sleep deprivation impairs immune function and may promote obesity. Deaths due to all causes are most frequent between 4:00 and 6:00 a.m., and this second section of the class highlights the relevance of sleep for preventive medicine. The societal relevance of sleep will be considered in the final section of the class. In an increasingly complex and technologically oriented society, operator-error by one individual can have a disastrous negative impact on public health and safety. Fatigue-related performance decrements are known to have contributed as causal factors to nuclear power plant failures, transportation disasters, and medical errors....

to tell the truth, this is the ever first online class I have ever learnt. This is so amazing, useful for a neurologist like me. Love this and still wait for an advanced course of this online class

interesting course. However, it did not, another sleep disorder called Klein Levin syndrome which disrupts the thalamus in the brain that controls sleep. This causes the sufferer to sleep for months at a time or long extended period of time, causing disturbing sleep, increased appetite and an inability to wake up properly.

It was a very good course. There were a few issues though: Some subject matter were repeated by different instructors. This which created redundancy. In addition some instructors were too slow or not very coherent. Quizes were fine, reflecting the important points and making me remember the course content.

I have always wanted to learn about sleep and its disorders since I was a child. Now thanks to this course, I have learnt a lot about sleep and related issues.

I rate 3 out of 5 because this course is way too technical for people in the Standard Track. I wish there was more focus on actual things to do to improve the quality of sleep as a healthy person

Unable to take the units I am interested in on the standard track. I will enroll again when I can pay for it.

Content is too lengthy i.e too many topics and lengthy explanation. Examples used are based on actual researches and quite difficult especially if the learners are not from biology/health science backgrounds. So take it at your own risks.

Wanted to enroll in Honors Tract, was not able. Professors seem more interested in talking about course than teaching something. Logistical presentation of course very poor. Impossible to get help.
