The influential British neuroscientist is the author of the international bestsellerWhy We Sleep (2017). It was recommended by The New York Timesfor night-table reading in the most pragmatic sense and endorsed by Bill Gates. In addition to examining how sleep affects the brain and body,Matthew has analyzed everything from its role in Alzheimers disease and depression to how it can facilitate learning and, potentially, extend our life expectancy.
