Why should I participate?
Upon completing the study, you'll receive a comprehensive report showing how your brain health and sleep patterns compare to thousands of other people. Plus, the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation on brain health is a global problem. If you're sleep deprived, you're at significant risk of making personal, professional and in severe cases, life-threatening errors on a daily basis. That's why with your support, neuroscientists at Western University hope to gather enough data to answer pressing questions about sleep and brain health.
How much sleep is "enough" sleep?
How does sleep affect cognition as you age?
Who is most susceptible to the effects of sleep deprivation?
What are the long-term health effects of sleep deprivation?
Do morning people differ from night owls in their cognition?
Which types of cognition are most affected by sleep loss?
How do I participate?
Scientists have worked with world-class product designers and engineers to create a fun and easy online experience, so that you can participate from anywhere in the world. An academic study of this nature has never been conducted before.
Take part in 3 easy steps
Begin by enrolling in the study and answering a short, easy and secure questionnaire.
Play and Track
Play an engaging suite of brain tests and submit a simple 3-question sleep questionnaire each day.
When you're done, you'll instantly see how your brain health and sleep patterns compare to others. Plus, when our scientists have crunched the numbers, we'll let you know the full results of the study.
