About This Project

Moonlight represents a source of natural light that likely modulated sleep in ancestral human communities. Our preliminary data from traditionally hunter-gatherer Toba/Qom communities from Argentina without access to electricity suggest that sleep is disrupted during moonlit nights. We would like to quantitatively determine whether sleep timing and consolidation is associated with moon phases by measuring the sleep-wake cycle timing in these communities with wrist activity monitors .
