Do flies count sheep or NMDA receptors to go to sleep?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The drive to sleep increases the longer that we stay awake, but this process is poorly understood at the cellular level. Now, Liu et al. show that the plasticity of a small group of neurons in the Drosophila central brain is a key component of the sleep homeostat.
