C-07: Beyond Epochs and Stages: New Concepts and Methods in Sleep State Analysis

Half-Day Course
Robert Thomas, MD, Chair

This course will introduce the attendee to new concepts and methods of sleep state analysis. Starting with a discussion of sleep as a multi-level and multi-component network state (health and disease), presentations will address machine learning approaches including estimating brain age from the sleep EEG; deep analysis of continuous EEG; and sleep state as amplifier and biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease.
