Sleep is one of the basic needs of human beings as well as animals, and it is necessary to survive. Furthermore, sleep is important for brain development, cleaning of the brain, learning processes and health in general. However, sleep disturbance is an increasing problem, and insufficient or irregular sleep is very common in our society.
SleepLoop aims at improving sleep with clinic-technological innovation. A team of engineers, electro physiologists and sleep experts will develop a portable technology that can modulate sleep very specifically without any drugs. In collaboration with clinicians, it will be tested if this method is beneficiary for the treatment and prevention of certain brain diseases as well as systemic disorders. This is particular relevant as such diseases are clearly connected with the sleep-wake behavior.
