CENTER FOR SLEEP AND COGNITION
The center is located at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at 330 Brookline Ave, Boston, MA.
The Center for Sleep and Cognition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is under the direction of Robert Stickgold, and is devoted to research into the cognitive and emotional functions of sleep. We are interested in how sleep and dreaming participate in the normal processing of emotional experiences and of memories more generally, and how these processes contribute to the mental health of the individual. Current research is focused on the role of sleep in memory consolidation, enhancement, and integration, and the deficits in these processes associated with sleep disorders as well as a range of psychiatric and neurological disorders.
