I am a mom of two who is consumed with unpacking the mysteries of the miniature humans in my life. When not wearing my mom-hat, I am a primate-loving, evolutionary-biology-teaching, neuroscience-studying, behaviour-examining, globe-trotting PhD who loves good research and is on a personal quest to understand why it is we do what we do. What is the basis of our human behavioural repertoire? And what could be more enigmatic in this realm than sleep?
