The research capabilities in sleep & wake include:

  • Digital polysomnographic (PSG) recording of sleep
  • PSG screening for sleep disorders
  • Manual sleep scoring by experienced scorers according to standard criteria, using the AASM (American Academy of Sleep Medicine) or the R&K (Rechtscahffen and Kales) scoring systems
  • Spectral analysis of the sleep and wakefulness EEG
  • Multiple Sleep Latency and Maintenance of Wakefulness Tests
  • Noise models of sleep disruption
  • Circadian models of sleep disruption
  • Actigraphic recording of sleep-wake cycles

Furthermore, we are one of only a handful of centres who are able to offer undisturbed 24 hour pharmacokinetic sampling via "hole in the wall" access to our sleep labs.
