Last week I was thrilled to moderate a World Science Festival panel about the mysteries of sleep and dreams. The video is now up here. I'm also embedding it below (if Wordpress plays nice with the code...). Be sure to watch till the end, when you can learn about snore-gasms. I've actually written about Niels Rattenborg, one of the panelists before, in a piece for the New York Times. I also wrote about the researchers he's now collaborating with, who put transmitters on birds that go on ultra-long migrations.
