Complex interactions of behavior, genes, and environment in the multi-system characterization of the effects of sleep loss on health, cardio-metabolic disease risk, cognition, and the epigenome

The purpose of this study is to see what effects sleep restriction (sleeping less than needed each night for many nights in a row) has on metabolism, cardiovascular regulation, cognitive function, and epigenomic changes in various tissues. This is an 11-day inpatient study. All of the 11 days and nights of the study will be spent in your study room in the Clinical Research Center at Penn State where you will live for the entire 11 days and nights without going home. During different days of the study you will be participating in several study procedures. These include: • Having your sleep patterns recorded every night • Taking performance and memory tests at regular intervals on a tablet computer everyday • Taking tests during an fMRI on three different occasions • Having blood drawn while you stay sitting in bed for up to four hours at a stretch while we test how your body processes sugar, or food on six different occasions • Having a small sample of fat (adipose tissue) removed on 2 different occasions We will determine your eligibility to be in the study during a screening process that consists of 4 screening bisits. Each visit will take up to several hours to complete and the entire screening process will take about 3 weeks. Completion of all screening visits: $50 Daily rate while living in hospital during 11-day study: $150/day (total $1,650) Incentive bonus for completing entire 11-day laboratory study: $550 Payment upon full completion: $2,250

Parents will complete assessments of their child's behaviors and sleeping patterns and attend 4 therapy sessions that assist with problematic behaviors in their child.
