Investigating the genetic basis of sleep using forward genetics

Abstract:

The alternation between waking and sleep is regulated by the internal circadian clock and sleep-wake history, and is also influenced by the external environment. Although our understanding of the circadian aspect of sleep regulation has increased, the mechanisms underlying sleep homeostasis are still largely unknown. Independent of the circadian clock, only a limited number of genes have been associated with specific sleep-wake properties. Forward genetics provides an unbiased approach, wh...
