study 1: daytime napping & overnight study

This study aims to investigate the benefits of napping. Eligible participants between age 20‐35 years will be asked to spend several, non‐consecutive days in the sleep laboratory where their brain activity will be recorded via electrodes placed on their scalp and face during either a daytime nap or during nighttime sleep.

study 2: sleep & memory

This study will test how sleep may be involved in memory. Eligible participants between age 20‐35 years will be asked to learn a memory task on several, non‐consecutive days in the sleep laboratory.
