To work toward this vision, the lab studies how sleep impacts function, learning, and overall health in adults with and without neurological conditions.
Researchers also look at how sleep interacts with or influences other factors such as fatigue, cognition, and pain, and they develop or assess the efficacy of non-pharmacological interventions (exercise intervention, tailoring of CBT-I to specific populations) to improve sleep.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of CBT-I on improving cognitive function and reducing the rate of beta-amyloid deposition in older adults with symptoms of insomnia.
