Scientific American: Early to Bed, Early to Rise: Scientists Determine How Gene Behind Sleep Cycle Works

I have at times had the ambition to study sleep. I remember trying to figure out what paths besides the full-on neurological (perhaps cum psychiatric) medical education could get me to a place of having some potential to contribute to the body of what's known/thought about sleep, how sleep works, etc. As it is, I'm just an especially enthusiastic lay audience for reports of what people are observing about sleep-related matters.
