Help us design ways to better understand sleep health!

Posted by Carolina on July 31, 2017 in News

Our goals:

We are developing an exciting new project to better understand how sleep influences health and well-being. We are planning ways to track important aspects of sleep and health over time.

How are we planning on doing this?

We will ask people to answer some questions on their sleep patterns and treatments and to take some short brain quizzes that test memory and attention. We will provide feedback to some of the questions and brain quizzes.

We need your help!

We would like your opinion about the questions you think are most important for understanding and improving sleep health.

What questions about sleep health do you think we should ask?

What information would you like to know regarding your own sleep health? Do you think getting information from tests of memory and thinking would be useful to you?

We are still designing this project and would love your feedback. Let us know your opinions and thoughts below!

Sorry, I just joined so not sure if you are still looking for questions. I’d be interested in naps and how long they are (I take naps that are 2-6 hours long due to Idiopathic Hypersomnia). All research I’ve ever read states it’s not healthy to take long naps but what if you are sleepy 24/7/365? Being sleep deprived (or at least your body seems to think it’s sleep deprived even though you get 10+ hours daily), how does this affect you. I know memory, cognitive, etc is worse for those with a sleep disorder like IH so is there anyway to remedy it? Also, I have severe Central Sleep Apnea. How is this affecting my brain? I feel getting information regarding memory and thinking is extremely important. My brain sometimes acts like I have Alzheimer’s
