Sections, a free benefit of membership, provide members from diverse areas of sleep research with opportunities to share interests, methodologies and research regarding sleep. Sign up for a section when you join or renew your membership.
Members of the Basic Sleep Research Section have research interests in areas such as neuroscience, genetics, cell biology, endocrinology and physiology. From these perspectives, animal and/or human research is aimed at understanding the molecular, neurophysiological or neuronal mechanisms controlling the sleep-wake cycle and states. Research also comprises the phylogeny, ontogeny and general physiology of sleep.
Section Head: Jonathan Wisor, PhD
Members of the Circadian Rhythms Research Section have research interests in interactions between sleep and biological rhythms. These interests range from elucidating the molecular, genetic, neural and physiological nature of these interactions to understanding how these processes interrelate across development and aging. Research also includes human circadian studies in healthy individuals and circadian sleep disorder patients.
Section Head: Diane Boivin, MD, PhD
Members of the Sleep and Behavior Research Section have research interests in sleep and wakefulness throughout the life cycle. Sleep deprivation and sleep loss, development, aging, pharmacological influences on sleep, gender differences, sleep and performance, and dreaming are among the interests of this Section.
Section Head: Wendy Troxel, PhD
Members of the Sleep Disorders Research Section have research interests in the epidemiology, cause, effect or treatment of sleep disorders. Members include those studying adult or pediatric sleep disorders (i.e., sleep apnea, narcolepsy, restless legs/periodic limb movement syndrome, parasomnias, insomnia) and those studying sleep in medical and psychiatric illnesses. Research may be conducted in humans or using animal models of sleep disorders.
