Do you consider yourself a GOOD SLEEPER?

Researchers at Concordia University are conducting a study to better understand the role of brain activity during sleep in the formation of new memories, among adults who identify as good sleepers.

Participation in this study will include:

  • Monetary compensation for full study completion
  • Three 12-hour overnight visits to our Concordia University (Loyola campus) sleep lab, in a private bedroom, with non-invasive measures of brain activity during sleep
  • Completion of memory tests before and after sleep on the 2nd and 3rd overnight recording visits

To be considered for this study, we are seeking participants who meet the following criteria:

1. Between 55 and 85 years old
2. No sleep medication
3. No diagnosed sleep disorders, chronic illness or mental health disorder
4. No regular night-shift work or recent travel across several time-zones
5. No excessive alcohol or substance use (including cannabis)
6. Must be a fluent/native speaker of French and/or English
