Sleep & learning
One of the reasons we sleep is to allow the undisturbed brain to consolidate information we have learned while being awake. We are interested in understanding how interfering with sleep may affect early cognitive development.
SNOOSE (SeNsOry Origin of poor Sleep in Early development) investigates whether the sensory hypersensitivity manifested early in the development of Autism or ADHD interferes with sleep and therefore with knowledge consolidation.
We are recruiting infants 6 to 14 months of age, with an older sibling with ASD and/or ADHD. If you are interested in taking part in this study please let us know.
Our first publication will appear here soon!
