Only recently have we discovered the power of sleep and the impact sleepless nights can have on our overall brain health. That’s why as a leader in the study of brain health and performance, The Ohio State University Neurological Institute is excited to partner with Arianna Huffington to learn about her newest book.
Our concentration, coordination, memory and mood suffer without proper rest. And, recent studies show that sleeping less than seven or eight hours a night has been linked to cognitive decline, memory loss and possibly even Alzheimer's Disease. Arianna will discuss how changing our relationship with sleep delivers stunning benefits to our mood, memory, pain sensitivity and other cognitive functions.

More about Arianna Huffington and THE SLEEP REVOLUTION
In her #1 New York Times bestseller Thrive, Huffington Post cofounder and editor in chief Arianna Huffington told the story of the day she collapsed from exhaustion, and how that became her wake-up call. She realized that, contrary to our collective delusion, burnout is not the necessary price we have to pay for success. Thrive kicked off a global dialogue about redefining success through well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving, and as Arianna toured the world to talk about the book, she noted one topic kept coming up again and again: sleep. The importance of sleep as a gateway to a more fulfilling way of living struck such a powerful chord that she realized it needed a much fuller exploration.
In her new book, THE SLEEP REVOLUTION: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time, Arianna illustrates how the combination of the myth that burning out is the necessary price for accomplishment and success, along with the distractions of a 24/7 wired world, has imperiled our sleep as never before, resulting in a global sleep deprivation crisis. She goes on to show the crucial role that sleep plays in our every waking moment—and how we can harness its power to improve every aspect of our lives.
