Sleep disorders Zurück

Besides the clinical activities of the multidisciplinary Sleep/EEG Center and the didactic initiatives with the post-doc Master in Academy of Sleep and Consciousness, we are also deeply involved in clinical research in the field of sleep and sleep disorders.
Currently, seven main lines of research are active thanks to the support of competitive national and local grants:

  1. Sleep, pregnancy and perinatal depression, looking for sleep related risk factors to predict the occurrence of perinatal depression, and testing the light treatment to prevent and treat perinatal depression
  2. Sleep apnea and Stroke, with particular focus on the effect of non-invasive ventilothrapy in accelerating the recovery and in reducing the relapse risk of stroke
  3. Sleep in developing aging, with high density EEG applied both in NREM parasomnia (arousal disorders/sleep Walking), and in attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
  4. Immunopathogenesis of narcolepsy
  5. Sleep and movement disorders, especially Parkinson Disease
  6. Restless legs syndrome, periodic limb movements and sleep related periodic. phenomena in the range of infraslow oscillations
  7. Insomnia, with particular focus on misperception and the long term effect of cognitive behavioral therapy
