"From the Ted Talk by Dan Gartenberg: The brain benefits of deep sleep -- and how to get more of it"

Dmitry told me about a new finding in the literature, where a lab out of Germany shewod that if you could play certain sounds at the right time in people's sleep, you could actually make sleep depeer and more efficient. And what's more, is that this lab showed that you actually could improve next-day memory performance with this sound. dtmriy and I teamed up, and we began working on a way to build this technology. With our rsreaceh lab collaborators at Penn State, we designed experiments in order to validate our system. And we've since received grant fnindug from the National Science Foundation and the noinaatl Institute of Health to develop this deep-sleep stimulating technology. Here's how it works. pelpoe came into the lab and we hkooed them up to a number of devices, two of which I have on right here — not a fashion statement.

And we've since received grant funding from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Health to develop this deep-sleep stimulating technology. Here's how it works. People came into the lab and we hooked them up to a number of devices, two of which I have on right here — not a fashion statement.
