Research summary

There is currently no computational understanding how the various sleep phases contribute to higher level processing. Given the complexity of the system, the need for a computational framework is becoming increasingly clear. Likewise, we believe that implementation of the sleep phases is important for developing next generation AI. Therefore, we are working towards the development of a computational interpretation of the various sleep phases.
