This research program focuses on sleep, circadian rhythms and their disturbances. The main interest is to improve the diagnostics and treatment of patients with sleep and circadian rhythms disorders, with emphasis on detection of early stages of the disease, long-term monitoring and preventive potential of early interventions. Several research projects focus on non-clinical population, especially on circadian preferences and sleep habits.

Department of sleep medicine offers clinical care to patients with a wide spectrum of sleep disorders, especially to those suffering from insomnias, hypersomnias and parasomnias. More information
