Anne Skeldon speaks at SRBR 2022 Conference in Amelia Island Florida

The 2022 Society for Research on Biological Rhythms (SRBR) Conference is being held this week (14-18 May) at the Omni Amelia Island Resort off the coast of Florida. The website for the conference is here. Anne Skeldon is attending and giving two symposium talks and a poster. Anne was one of the four invited speakers in the session on mathematical modelling and her talk title was “Personalized mathematical models for human sleep and circadian timing for the design of light interventions”. The poster presented another dimension to the talk and was entitled “Maths Meets Light and Circadian Data to Design Personalised Interventions for Improved Sleep Timing in People Living With Schizophrenia“. Both the talk and the poster were based on her recent paper in the Schizophrenia Bulletin (link here). Anne also gave the talk of Derk-Jan Dijk (Surrey Sleep Research Centre) entitled “Regulation of sleep timing in adolescents by sleep homeostasis, circadian rhythmicity, light consumption and social constraints”. That talk was largely focussed on two papers that were published a while ago (Nature, link here) and (Sleep Med Rev, link here) but the theme is still a hot topic in the field.
