Introducing a new blog: sleep on it

Having realised that we’re sufficiently fascinating to be the cause of sleep deprivation in some of our readers, we thought we’d try to help.

And so, we’d like (very happily) to introduce Karyn O’Keeffe, who will be blogging about all things sleep-related on sleep on it.  Karyn’s been working in the field of sleep for almost a decade, and currently investigates both sleeping disorders (eg. narcolepsy and insomnia) amongst other issues.  She is also the developer (and primary lecturer) for NZ’s sole dedicated undergrad paper in sleep and circadian science.

Welcome, Karyn!  We look forward enormously to better understanding sleep, given how important (and neglected) it is.
