Florence Pomares

Florence Pomares, PhD

Research Associate

Overview: Florence is a research associate specialized in neuroimaging. She studies brain anatomical and functional alterations in sleep disorders, such as idiopathic hypersomnia, insomnia and in sleep deprivation with brain imaging methods. In addition, Florence coordinates the study on the impact of insomnia treatment on mood, brain functioning, and cardiovascular health.
