Pre-Thinking:

There’s nothing quite like a good night’s sleep. What if technology could help us get more out of it? Dan Gartenberg is working on tech that stimulates deep sleep, the most regenerative stage which (among other wonderful things) might help us consolidate our memories and form our personalities. Find out more about how playing sounds that mirror brain waves during this stage might lead to deeper sleep — and its potential benefits on our health, memory and ability to learn.

Who is he?:

Daniel Gartenberg is a PhD in Human Factors and Applied Cognition and is currently an adjunct assistant professor at Penn State University. He has 10 years of experience making sleep technology and is an entrepreneur who founded Proactive Life LLC, Mobile Sleep Technologies LLC, and Fly Fleet LLC. Why Why you should view.

He developed smartphone and wearable apps, like the Sonic Sleep Coach Alarm Clock, for tracking sleep quality and playing sounds that make sleep deeper. He is currently conducting grant-funded research from the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Aging to develop sound environments that can diagnose and treat sleep disorders, improve sleep quality, and optimize daytime alertness. Gartenberg works with companies and individuals who want to get more out of their sleep.
