The consequences of experimental sleep fragmentation on cognitive-emotional processes

At the University of Oxford, we are looking for volunteers between the ages of 18-30, who are good sleepers, to take part in our research. Our aim is to determine how sleep affects cognitive performance and mood.

The study will involve an overnight assessment of sleep and daytime functioning in a sleep laboratory, during which you will be allocated to one night of normal sleep or to one night of sleep fragmentation (partial sleep deprivation). 


We are looking for:

Participants must be:

  • Good sleepers
  • Aged 18-30yrs
  • Those who have no history of mental health or neurological disorders


  • South East
