John Axelsson is a professor at Stockholm University and a senior lecturer at Karolinska Institutet. With his research he aims to increase the knowledge and awareness of how sleep in the rapidly developing 24 hour society affects health, cognitive processes and social behaviour. Two of the research questions he finds most intriguing concern how fast the brain can switch from sleep to wakefulness and how culture shapes sleep behaviour.
- The social side of sleep
- Stress, sleep and health: What are the links?
- The awakening brain
- Sleep in the modern society: Influences of working hours and artifical light
