dc.descriptionYang Dan is a Professor of Neurobiology in the Department of Molecular & Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research aims to elucidate (1) what circuits in the mammalian brain control sleep, and (2) mechanisms by which the frontal cortex exerts top-down executive control. Her lab uses a variety of techniques, including optogenetics, electrophysiology, imaging, and virus-mediated circuit tracing.en_US

dc.description.abstractSleep is a fundamental biological process, and its disruption has profound impacts on human health. Using a variety of techniques including optogenetics, electrophysiology, imaging, and gene expression profiling, we identify key neurons in the sleep control circuits and map their synaptic connections. Sleep appears to be controlled by a highly distributed network spanning the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain, where REM and non-REM sleep neurons are part of the central somatic and autonomic motor circuits. The intimate association between the sleep and autonomic/somatic motor control circuits suggests that a primary function of sleep is to promote biological processes incompatible with movement.en_US
