Sleep and Daytime Functioning (a sub study of: Sleep and Cognition following Therapy for Insomnia: a randomised, controlled Trial of Digital Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (SCOTIA))
This study’s main aim is to learn more about the relationship between sleep and how we process emotion based information. Participants will initially complete a brief set of online questionnaires. This is expected to take about 10-20 minutes to complete and will ask about sleep and emotional wellbeing. Those who meet the criteria will be contacted by the research team to arrange one visit to the lab at Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, South Parks Road, Oxford. This lab visit (1.5 hours) will involve completing a brief set of questionnaires and computerised tasks. Participants who attend the lab will be compensated for their time and effort. The good sleepers control group will be compensated with a £10 Amazon Voucher. Individuals who have difficulty sleeping, will receive free 12 week access to digital cognitive behavioural therapy treatment delivered by Sleepio™ worth £60.
The research is being conducted by Laura Mitchell, Trainee Clinical Psychologist, at the Oxford Institute of Clinical Psychology Training as part of her doctoral dissertation (firstname.lastname@example.org). It is being supervised by Dr Simon Kyle, Senior Research Fellow in Behavioural Sleep Medicine at the Sleep and Circadian Neurosciences Institute (SCNi).
