Science Cafe | You are Getting Sleeeepy…, Oct. 11

Science Café presents Dr. Julie Suhr discussing “You are Getting Sleeeepy…” on Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 5 p.m. at the Baker Center Front Room.

Not sleeping can have implications for everybody, but the effects can vary significantly by age. Suhr, Professor of Psychology, will discuss these issues during the Science Café talk.

“Be careful to not fall asleep during the talk,” Suhr said, “or you might get used as a case example.”

Suhr noted that caffeine and other stimulants can give you a short burst of energy, but beware. In addition to the crash, there can be real, long-term effects.

So, while the first 50 Café attendees get free coffee, don’t overdo it!

Sciencé Cafe events are held on Wednesdays at 5 p.m. in the Front Room at Baker University Center. They are free and open to students, faculty and staff. Science Café is a venue for students to share their interests informally during a conversation exchange in a friendly setting.

The Science Café is hosted by Dr. Sarah Wyatt, Professor of Environmental & Plant Biology and Vice President of the Ohio University Chapter of Sigma Xi, and Roxanne Malé-Brune, Director of Grant Development and Projects in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Creativity.

Science Café and Café Conversations are sponsored by the Office of Vice President for Research and Creativity and the Ohio University Chapter of Sigma Xi.
