WHY:
We spend a third of our lives asleep.  What’s going on?  How can that be adaptive for us and for all other creatures who are thus unconscious, not eating, not seeking a mate, and are vulnerable to predators?  What is sleep about and how can we make it work better for us? That is the subject that Yale Medical School Professor Meir Kryger, M.D., will address as the invited featured speaker at the Eighth Annual Darwin Day Dinner in Fairfield County, CT
