Paul Klee (December 18, 1879 � June 29, 1940) was a Swiss painter. Klee was born in M�nchenbuchsee (near Bern) of Switzerland into a musical family - his father, Hans Klee, taught music at the Hofwil Teacher Seminar near Berne. In his early years, Paul wanted to be a musician, but decided on the visual arts in his teen years. He studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich with Heinrich Knirr and Franz von Stuck.

Deep into Sleep
While researchers probe sleep's functions, sleep itself is becoming a lost art.

by Craig Lambert


Not long ago, a psychiatrist in private practice telephoned associate professor of psychiatry Robert Stickgold, a cognitive neuroscientist specializing in sleep research.
