This is a 6 week study comparing the effectiveness of Behavioral Therapy administered remotely via video conference versus conventional in-office Behavioral Therapy on recently hospitalized patients with insomnia.
The SCAN Lab is conducting a study at the University of Arizona to observe how a six-week course of light exposure influences the brain and sleep pattern in people living with traumatic stress.

The purpose of this study is to look at the effects of a novel breathing training on sleep, breathing, and blood pressure.
- Pre-training assessment and overnight sleep study.
- 5-10 min each day breathing training at home using the POWERbreathe® device.
- Once weekly laboratory visit.
- Post-training assessment and overnight sleep study.
Pre-and post-assessments include blood pressure measurement, body weight, neck circumference, cardiorespiratory monitoring, blood draw and sleep surveys.
There is growing evidence from epidemiological and experimental studies that individuals who report short sleep are at risk for a number of adverse cardiovascular and metabolic outcomes. The proposed study is the first step in a larger program of research that will bridge the existing epidemiologic and experimental literatures and develop behavioral interventions for insufficient sleep. Forty (40) subjects will be recruited and assessed (about 26 short and 14 normal duration sleepers), following an on-line survey, in two phases.
