Bonney and I attended an Osher Lifelong Learning at Vanderbilt class yesterday. We have been active in this program for more than 10 years. This Fall session had a course we were interested in and at a Handicapped accessible location.

11:00 a.m.–12:15 p.m. Circadian Rhythms and Sleep

Instructors: Carl H. Johnson, Stevenson Chair in Biological Sciences, Vanderbilt University Beth Malow, Professor of Neurology, Vanderbilt University, and Director of the Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Center Douglas McMahon, Stevenson Chair in Biological Sciences, Vanderbilt University Terry Page, Professor of Biological Sciences, Emeritus, Vanderbilt University

In order to cope with the challenges of a rhythmically changing environment, plants, animals, and even microbes have evolved an internal biological clock. These endogenous, time-keeping systems orchestrate daily rhythms of behavior, physiology, and metabolism in harmony with the rising and setting of the sun. In this lecture series we will explore the properties of these clocks, how they are set to “local time,” and their utility in various aspects of physiology and behavior. Particular emphasis will be given to the sleep/wake cycle of humans with discussion about the ways sleep is regulated and the consequences of disruption of our daily sleep patterns.

One thought on “Enjoying Senior Adult Classes at Vanderbilt

  1. I think it would be great to host some of the Osher Lifelong Learning classes at our clubhouse. How would we go about arranging that or at least investigating the possibility?
