What if you could make your sleep more efficient?
As a sleep scientist,
this is the question that has captivated me
for the past 10 years.
Because while the lightbulb and technology have brought about a world
of 24-hour work and productivity,
it has come at the cost
of our naturally occurring circadian rhythm
and our body's need for sleep.
The circadian rhythm dictates our energy level throughout the day,
and only recently we've been conducting a global experiment on this rhythm,
which is putting our sleep health
and ultimately our life quality in jeopardy.
Because of this,
we aren't getting the sleep we need,
with the average American sleeping a whole hour less
than they did in the 1940s.
For some reason,
we decided to wear it as a badge of honor
that we can get by on not enough sleep.
This all adds up to a real health crisis.
Most of us know that poor sleep is linked to diseases
like Alzheimer's, cardiovascular disease,
stroke and diabetes.
And if you go untreated with a sleep disorder like sleep apnea,
you're more likely to get many of these illnesses.
But did you know about sleep's impact on your mental states?
Poor sleep makes us make risky, rash decisions
and is a drain on our capacity for empathy.
When sleep deprivation literally makes us more sensitive to our own pain,
it's not so surprising that we have a hard time relating to others
and just generally being a good and healthy person
when we're sleep-deprived.
Scientists are now starting to understand
how not only the quantity
but also the quality of sleep impacts our health and well-being.
My research focuses
on what many scientists believe is the most regenerative stage of sleep:
deep sleep.
We now know that generally speaking,
there are three stages of sleep:
light sleep,
rapid eye movement or REM
and deep sleep.
We measure these stages by connecting electrodes to the scalp, chin and chest.
In light sleep and REM,
our brain waves are very similar to our brain waves in waking life.
But our brain waves in deep sleep have these long-burst brain waves
that are very different from our waking life brain waves.
These long-burst brain waves are called delta waves.
When we don't get the deep sleep we need,
it inhibits our ability to learn
and for our cells and bodies to recover.
Deep sleep is how we convert all those interactions
that we make during the day
into our long-term memory and personalities.
As we get older,
we're more likely to lose these regenerative delta waves.
So in way, deep sleep and delta waves
are actually a marker for biological youth.
So naturally, I wanted to get more deep sleep for myself
and I literally tried almost every gadget, gizmo, device and hack out there --
consumer-grade, clinical-grade,
what have you.
I learned a lot, and I found I really do need, like most people,
eight hours of sleep.
I even shifted my circadian component
by changing my meals, exercise and light exposure,
but I still couldn't find a way to get a deeper night of sleep ...
that is until I met Dr. Dmitry Gerashchenko
from Harvard Medical School.
Dmitry told me about a new finding in the literature,
where a lab out of Germany showed that if you could play certain sounds
at the right time in people's sleep,
you could actually make sleep deeper and more efficient.
And what's more, is that this lab showed
that you actually could improve next-day memory performance
with this sound.
Dmitry and I teamed up,
and we began working on a way to build this technology.
With our research lab collaborators at Penn State,
we designed experiments in order to validate our system.
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.
(Laughter)
When we detected that people were in deep sleep,
we played the deep-sleep stimulating sounds
that were shown to make them have deeper sleep.
I'm going to demo this sound for you right now.
(Repeating sound waves)
Pretty weird, right?
(Laughter)
So that sound is actually at the same burst frequency as your brain waves
when your brain is in deep sleep.
That sound pattern actually primes your mind
to have more of these regenerative delta waves.
When we asked participants the next day about the sounds,
they were completely unaware that we played the sounds,
yet their brains responded with more of these delta waves.
Here's an image of someone's brain waves from the study that we conducted.
See the bottom panel?
This shows the sound being played at that burst frequency.
Now look at the brain waves in the upper part of the graph.
You can see from the graph
that the sound is actually producing more of these regenerative delta waves.
We learned that we could accurately track sleep
without hooking people up to electrodes
and make people sleep deeper.
We're continuing to develop
the right sound environment and sleep habitat
to improve people's sleep health.
Our sleep isn't as regenerative as it could be,
but maybe one day soon,
we could wear a small device
and get more out of our sleep.
Thank you.
(Applause)
