Michael K. Scullin, PhD
Baylor University
Title: “Sleep & Educational Learning”

Michael Scullin is an expert in sleep-cognition interactions. Michael initially trained at Furman University and Washington University in St. Louis where he investigated cognitive aging and applying cognitive science to education. In graduate school, he became convinced that sleep was a missing link in these areas and pursued sleep-focused postdoctoral training at Emory University. Michael is currently an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Baylor University where he is an enthusiastic instructor of sleep courses and the PI of the Sleep Neuroscience and Cognition (SNAC) Lab. He is a past recipient of the SRSF Early Career Development Award and a current member of the SRS Pipeline Development Committee. His current NSF CAREER award supports his scientific goals of connecting sleep patterns to educational learning across laboratory and classroom settings and enables his team to share the findings with the community via pop-up and permanent exhibits at the local museum.

The Virtual Seminar Series is a resource to support career development by providing opportunities for trainees and early career investigators to deliver professional talks to an audience of peers and colleagues through online seminars. Our goal is to provide a resource for Sleep Research Society members at all levels of training to get continued exposure to new and exciting sleep and circadian research methods and findings.
