Dr. J. Allan Hobson, a Harvard Medical School professor and researcher, has spearheaded a program to teach middle school students about the science of sleep. With the support of the Caledonia North school system, Hobson and two middle school science teachers created a four-week unit on the brain and sleep. After learning about basic brain biology and the sleep cycle, students visited a sleep museum set up by Hobson in his Vermont barn, where they could experience a sleep chamber, watch interviews with sleep study subjects, further explore the brain, and ask Hobson questions.
