M. Lampros Perogamvros


I am a psychiatrist, working as a senior clinical fellow at the Sleep Laboratory of the Geneva University Hospitals and as a researcher at the Department of Neurosciences of the University of Geneva. My work focuses on the investigation of the neural correlates and the phenomenology of dreams and nightmares. More precisely, I am investigating the role of cortical and subcortical structures in dream generation and the overall dream experience, as well as their dysfunction in nightmare disorder. I am also interested in how sleep and dreaming participate in emotion regulation and in memory consolidation processes, with the goal of understanding the potential function of dreaming. Another research domain I am interested in is the treatment of parasomnias and insomnia disorder as well as the interaction between sleep and neuropsychiatric disorders.
