Faraut, Brice


The neuroscientist Brice Faraut has conducted research for several years into the effects of restricting sleep as part of a broad European consortium. In Paris in 2014 he was involved in creating the VIFASOM (Vigilance, Fatigue, Sommeil et Santé publique) research team which, as part of the Centre du sommeil et de la vigilance de l’Hôtel-Dieu, has enabled him to continue his research into the effects of sleep deprivation and of people’s capacity to recover from it. He is the author of numerous scientific publications. His recent discoveries of new effects associated with siestas have given rise to many articles and interviews in the French and international media.
