The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging
The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) is a large, national, long-term study that will follow approximately 50,000 men and women who are between the ages of 45 and 85 for at least 20 years. This project will analyse information regarding self-reported medical, psychological and sleep characteristics, in addition to cognitive performance measures collected from 30,000 CLSA participants. The project aims to determine whether changes in sleep characteristics or insomnia symptoms are directly related to cognitive function in older adults.
