There is an urgent need for standardized, rigorous, and open-source tools that the community can access in a timely manner to systematically evaluate the performance of new technology for measuring sleep.
Wearable and mobile technology to characterize daily patterns of sleep, stress, presleep worry, and mood in adolescent insomnia
There is a bidirectional relationship between daily stress and sleep, with daily stress negatively impacting sleep, which in turn leads to more stress in adolescents with and without insomnia symptoms.
The complexities of the sleep-pain relationship in adolescents: A critical review
We will highlight current methodological challenges for both sleep and pain assessments, explore the recent evidence for directionality in the sleep-pain relationship, review potential mechanisms and factors underlying the relationship, and provide direction for future investigations.
Sleep facilitates spatial memory but not navigation using the Minecraft Memory and Navigation task
We developed the Minecraft Memory and Navigation (MMN) task for the purpose of disentangling how spatial memory accuracy and navigation change over time, and to study sleep’s independent contributions to each.
Spatial Augmented Respiratory Cardiofeedback Design for Prosthetic Embodiment Training: a Pilot Study
We developed and preliminarily tested an embodiment training protocol based on a SARC implemented through a computer screen – visualizing a 3D model of a prosthetic hand – and a thoracic band for monitoring the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) of the users.
Into the wild…the need for standardization and consensus recommendations to leverage consumer-facing sleep technologies
By considering sensor capability and contribution to sleep outcomes, most devices now incorporate photoplethysmography (PPG), an optical measure of variation in small vessel blood volume.
Earlier Bedtime and Effective Coping Skills Predict a Return to Low-Risk of Depression in Young Adults during the COVID-19 Pandemic
To determine the persistent effects of the pandemic on mental health in young adults, we categorized depressive symptom trajectories and sought factors that promoted a reduction in depressive symptoms in high-risk individuals.
A dataset reflecting the multidimensionality of insomnia symptomatology in adolescence using standardized questionnaires
Psychological and behavioral questionnaire data are provided for 95 adolescents (age range between 16-19 years, 62% female) with and without clinical or subclinical insomnia symptoms, determined from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).
A virtual reality-based mind–body approach to downregulate psychophysiological arousal in adolescent insomnia
A novel, digital, immersive virtual reality (VR)-based mind–body approach, designed to reduce bedtime arousal in adolescents with insomnia.
