Dr. Erin Flynn-Evans interviewed on the BBC CrowdScience Podcast
(Dec 6, 2019)
In November, 2019, Dr. Erin Flynn-Evans was interviewed on a BBC CrowdScience podcast episode called "Why do I get sleepy?" to talk about sleepiness and the physiology behind the feelings and sensations we experience when we are tired. What is going on in our bodys and brains when tiredness begins to take over?

The podcast episode covers a number of topics relating to fatigue and it’s effects on performance, mood and behavior. Though Dr. Flynn-Evans’ research focuses on the aerospace domain, particularly with regard to human performance in the demanding realm of space exploration, her research helps to explain the effects that sleepiness can have on adults, toddlers, teenagers and anyone who is depriving themselves of much-needed sleep. Dr. Flynn-Evans is the Principal Investigator of the Fatigue Countermeasures Laboratory in the Human Systems Integration Division.
