The world’s largest sleep study needs you!
Dr Adrian Owen, a renowned neuroscientist from Western University in Ontario, Canada, has very recently launched the world’s largest sleep-and-cognition study to help understand the effect sleep and sleep deprivation has on our brains.
Researchers aim to better understand why the brain craves sleep and what happens to our thinking abilities when we don’t sleep well or enough. There is currently little global-scale research into exactly how our brains deal with these sleep deficits.
Study participants are asked to track their sleep over a 3-day period while playing a set of scientifically valid tests of brain function. Sleep values and performance data will be available for participants to view and compare with other volunteers throughout the 6-month study.

At ISS we have recently been conducting several large studies on helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft pilots around the world. Specifically, we have been collecting objective sleep and performance data, as well as self-reported sleep and fatigue data.
