Active and healthy ageing: sleep on it


About the research

A good night's sleep is crucial for your body and mind to recover, especially when you are a little older. But the older we get, the worse we usually sleep. Julie Vanderlinden (KU Leuven) is therefore investigating whether exercise has a positive effect on sleep and the health of the elderly.
