Does insufficient, disordered, or mistimed sleep cause physical/mental illness?

The CDC calls insufficient sleep a "public health problem." But sleep & circadian rhythms are oft-ignored—even derided--aspects of health.

When you ask subjects about lifestyle, don't stop @ diet/exercise. Ask about sleep. When you ask about sleep, don't stop @ length/quality. Ask about circadian timing: when ppl sleep. Is timing dictated by their body clock *or* work/family demands?

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Characterize the bases for the circadian timing, duration and and quality of sleep and vulnerability to develop sleep disorders

Study would seek to characterize the etiological bases, including genetic, socio-cultural and environmental, for the circadian timing, duration and quality of sleep and vulnerability to develop sleep disorders.

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Wearables for capturing sleep and circadian information across day/night and long-term.

Wearables that can capture sleep and circadian information-across the day/night and over time--should be included. Activity monitors, EEG, ECG and Oximetry measurement are increasingly accessible with miniaturization of technology. Consumer interest in many of these devices has accelerated development and driven costs down. Analysis of these data-perhaps using open-platforms- hold promise for deriving quantitative measurements... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What biomarker (or array) is associated with the restorative-non-restorative sleep continuum?

Sleep participates in regulation of biological systems that support health. Sleep is experienced as restorative; and non-restorative sleep is associated with debilitating fatigue, experienced in many medical conditions. Questions are needed to assess subjective restorative quality of sleep (in the last months) together with questions about mental and physical health, sleep continuity, quality, duration and circadian timing.... more »
