This study demonstrates that raw acceleration data from consumer wearable devices has the potential to be harnessed to predict sleep in children.

Bedtime screen use behaviors and sleep outcomes: Findings from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study
We aim to determine associations between bedtime screen time behaviors and sleep outcomes in a national study of early adolescents.
This study examined changes in sleep habits and recreational screen time (social media, video gaming), and their relationship, before and across the first year of the pandemic in adolescents in the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study.
We sought to elucidate the interaction between sleep and mood considering menstrual cycle phase in 72 healthy young women with natural, regular menstrual cycles and without menstrual-associated disorders.
Morning perception of sleep, stress, and mood, and its relationship with overnight physiological sleep: findings from the National Consortium on Alcohol and Neurodevelopment in Adolescence (NCANDA) study
This cross-sectional study investigated objective–subjective sleep discrepancies and the physiological basis for morning perceptions of sleep, mood, and readiness, in adolescents.
Stress, hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis activity and autonomic nervous system function in adolescents with insomnia
We investigated the relationship between insomnia, stress, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity, and autonomic nervous system (ANS) function in adolescence.
Call to action: an open-source pipeline for standardized performance evaluation of sleep-tracking technology
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.
Adolescent alcohol use is linked to disruptions in age-appropriate cortical thinning: an unsupervised machine learning approach
In this study, adolescents from the NCANDA study who endorsed little to no alcohol use at baseline were assessed with structural magnetic resonance imaging and followed longitudinally at four yearly intervals.
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.
