The field of sleep medicine and research is constantly evolving and changing as we learn more about the human body, mind, and how we sleep. There are hundreds of scientists across the country performing exciting research which they're inviting you to be a part of! You can be a part of shaping sleep medicine in Canada by perusing the opportunities below.

 

We need your help to evaluate an insomnia intervention for children with previously treated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)!
Your participation would involve completing an online program and providing feedback over a 6-8 week period.
You will receive $30 compensation for your help with this study.

You may be eligible if:
1) You are a parent of a 4-10 year old child who currently has insomnia
2) Your child has been successfully treated for OSA with an adenotonsillectomy (removal of adenoids and tonsils)

If you and your child meet this criteria, please contact the study investigators for more information at Cette adresse courriel est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.

This study is being conducted from Dalhousie University in Dr. Penny Corkum's sleep lab.

RESEARCH PARTICIPANTS WANTED

Study: Sleep and circadian rhythms in men and women

Postmenopausal women 45 years or older wanted for study on sleep-wake cycle. Participants will receive financial compensation for their participation in this study. They will first visit the lab at various times throughout the screening procedure (duration of these visits vary among participants), including 1 night in laboratory for sleep evaluation. They will have 2 periods of 2 weeks at home each to complete questionnaires and 2 lab visits (~72-h visits spanning 4 days).

Risks and discomforts: blood samples, frequent visits, and overnight stays in our research Centre. For research purposes, participants will be asked to take melatonin, approved by Health Canada to treat sleep-wake disorders, and placebo, a substance that looks like melatonin but doesn’t have any active ingredient.

Study Location:
Centre for Study and Treatment of Circadian Rhythms
Douglas Mental Health University Institute

Help Sleep Science!


We would like to invite you to participate in our sleep spindle crowdsourcing project. The purpose of this project is to create a high-quality library of spindles, so that we can better understand the biology of spindles, how they may be involved in disease, and to help engineers make better algorithms to find sleep spindles automatically. The dataset and any algorithms that are produced will be freely available.

We are recruiting trained sleep technologists who are willing to volunteer a small amount of time to score sleep spindles using an internet interface. The interface is designed to make the task easy, and it can be done from anywhere on a laptop or computer using your internet browser.

If you would like to participate, please go to:
www.modasleepscoring.com

You begin by registering, then there will be a short description of the interface, and then you can get started!
