Animal Sleep Series Ep03: Animal Sleep

With special guest: Professor John Lesku

In this episode, I talk with Professor John Lesku

John is interested in most things related to sleep. Using behavioural observations, accelerometry for remote monitoring, and neurophysiological recording techniques, he seeks to provide insight into how sleep and sleep functions have evolved in different types of animals, from flatworms to birds and mammals. He also studies how ecological factors (e.g., predation risk, reproduction) influence the amount, composition, depth, and timing of sleep. Most recently, these interests have expanded to include how anthropogenic pollution influences sleeping brain activity in mammals and birds.
