The newly constructed Sleep Research Laboratory at Bedford Park allows basic research into sleep and circadian rhythms as well as applied research into insomnia treatments.
The lab consists of:
- Four environmentally controlled bedrooms
- Experimenter/equipment room
- Kitchen and lounge area
- Toilets and shower
The bedrooms are equipped to record EEG, EMG, EOG, movement, breathing, and body temperature and transmit this data to computers.
Available for field use are digital sleep monitors, wrist activity monitors used to measure sleep non-invasively, and experimental light ‘glasses’ used for light therapy.
