“This research study investigates how sleep and circadian rhythm disruption affect our health and well-being—knowledge that can be used to design new sleep-related interventions to prevent diseases.”
The entire study takes place in your own home. There are no additional costs to you. We will mail equipment to you, which you will use to measure your sleep and biological rhythms over a 10-day period.
This study collects data using online methods and does not require you to come to the lab. Please check the methods section for details.
