Dr. Rosenberg Appears on NPR “Morning Edition”

NeuroTrials Research & Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine CEO Dr. Russell Rosenberg joined the NPR Morning Edition show today to discuss sleepwalkers. An excerpt from the interview is below:

Though a sleepwalker’s brain might be partially awake, most sleepwalkers have no memory of their episodes, and that’s a key feature, says Russell Rosenberg, chairman of the National Sleep Foundation and CEO of Neural Trials Research in Atlanta. Some research suggests that the sleepwalker’s frontal cortex — the brain’s center for decision-making, judgment and short-term memory — is not fully online during sleepwalking.
