Approved Research

Association between sleep patterns of morningness-eveningness and changes in cognitive function

Principal Investigator: Professor Daqing Ma
Approved Research ID: 94034
Approval date: February 16th 2023

Lay summary

The aim of the research project is to investigate the association between sleep patterns with cognition.

As current studies have shown an association between sleep duration and quality with cognition, we would like to look if, under the same duration and quality, the pattern of one's sleep would have an effect on his/her cognitive function.

The project will take around 6 months.

For public health, the findings of this study would yield a meaningful outcome as there are groups of people who specifically work as an eveningness schedule. Hence, the resulted association would be significant to both researcher, public, employers, and employees.
