The Science of Sleep (Dr. Matthew Walker)

This episode is all about SLEEP - featuring one of the world's top experts, Dr. Matthew Walker. He's a Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, the founder and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science, and author of the book "Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams."


His groundbreaking research covers everything from why we sleep, what happens to us when we sleep, what happens when we dream, and how sleep impacts our concentration, our memory, our immune system, and more. His current focus is on the possible link between not getting enough sleep and likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease.


We tried to keep this short - but there was SO much to learn that we went ahead and shared the full conversation. Don’t miss the end when Ric and Matt go through a lightning round of things in your life that could be affecting your sleep - like caffeine, alcohol, what you eat, when you eat, and more.


This is 3 Things, with Dr. Matthew Walker.
