Participate in Sleep Research
We need volunteers to be involved in our research examining the relationship between depressive disorders and sleep. We have a strong interest in the biological risk factors for depression and how a major depressive disorder can affect the sleep of both children and adults. Insomnia and biological rhythm problems are also a focus of our clinical service and research program.
Most of our studies require a minimum of two overnight sleep studies.
