SCIE 212 Sleep, Dreams, and Art

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Humans spend one third of their lives sleeping. The single unifying experience of the sleep state: the experience of dreams. Dreams are as old as our species, but have eluded systematic investigation until recently through modern advances in our understanding of cognitive processes and sleep’s underlying neuro-cellular components. This course offers an introduction to the neurobiology of sleep to examine our evolving understanding of the brain and how dreams influence and inspire artistic expression.
