Circadian disruption is one of many physiological processes that have been implicated in Alzheimer’s disease. Over the last few years, this relationship has gained traction and researchers have been exploring how sleep and circadian disruption could be potential contributors to the risk and pathogenesis of the disease. However, the underlying mechanisms behind this bidirectional relationship remains unclear and our understanding of the potential processes behind this are still in their infancy. To find out more about this, we spoke with Marco Brancaccio (UK DRI at Imperial College London, UK) at the UK–Korea Neuroscience Symposium (12–13 August, London, UK) to discuss...
