Sleep Research Laboratory

A fully equipped Sleep Research Laboratory consists of a control room, a sleep study research area with three bedrooms and shower/ bathroom facilities.
  • Polysomnographic recordings of sleep can be obtained from three subjects simultaneously by means of a computer-based sleep EMBLA acquisition system. 
  • A portable computer-based polysomnographic sleep recording system is available for monitoring sleep in home or clinic settings. 
  • Numerous microprocessors (Mini-Mitter® actigraphy) are available for  recording of activity and body temperature (BioPac). 
  • Software is available for scoring the activity data for sleep detection and cosinor analysis of temperature data. 
  • The lab also has a repair shop, which is used for making and reconditioning small laboratory equipment.
