Analysis of EGFR-dependent sleep in C. elegans
Disordered sleep impairs cognitive performance, and chronic sleep loss is associated with increased risk of cardiometabolic diseases including obesity and hypertension. Despite the fundamental importance of sleep, its function remains controversial and the molecular mechanisms by which it is executed are only beginning to be elucidated. Sleep is recognized to be regulated by conserved genetic mechanisms, and in the past decade the sleep field has exp...
