NeuRA Sleep and Breathing Lab

Obstructive sleep apnoea is more than just an extreme form of snoring. In this disorder, the muscles in the throat and upper airway repeatedly collapse while you sleep, leading to a decrease in the amount of oxygen in your blood. This also partially rouses you from sleep many times a night and leads to poor sleep and an increased risk of accidents, hypertension, heart attack and stroke.

The talented researchers at NeuRA have created the NeuRA Sleep and Breathing Lab, an official Facebook page to share stories, news and research into sleep and breathing disorders.

“We will also be posting general information and quick facts on all things sleep and breathing, in addition to advancements in the field from around the globe” – Jason Amatoury, PhD. Research Officer, Neuroscience Research Australia
