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?
