Abstract

Sleepwalking is often seen as a humorous but harmless activity. By and large it is. Occasionally a sleepwalker does dramatic and dangerous things. They may cook food, wander into the night, drive, email, or initiate sexual intercourse. They may even kill. I present some of the more dramatic cases reported, and the current understanding of the science of sleepwalking.

This seminar is hosted by Professor Barbara Pierscionek

All welcome.
