In this talk Penelope Lewis will introduce the new science of Sleep Engineering, explaining how we believe it can be used to slow down cognitive aging, as well as enhancing memory and emotional processing.

Penelope will talk about memory replay in sleep, and explain how we can trigger it at will using sounds and smells. She will also go over some of the very latest research findings in all these fields.
