Patrick Fuller is associate Professor of Neurology at both Harvard Medical School and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and is involved with numerous organisations including the Society for Neuroscience and the Sleep Research Society.
Patrick enlightened me on present and potential future technological hacks for different brain wave states and sleep; some of the major neurotransmitters and hormones involved in sleep/wake regulation; the circadian clock and how we are affected by temperature and blue light; what monophasic, biphasic and polyphasic sleep patterns are and how to create an ideal sleeping environment.
