About This Project
Battle of the clocks: Does your biological clock determine whether the timing of exercise impairs or promotes sleep?
Higher levels of exercise have been linked to better sleep but it is unclear whether the time of day at which individuals exercise plays a role. This project examines whether the regularity and timing of exercise (early versus late), and circadian-type impact sleep. We examine these questions among athlete and non-athlete students to determine when (and for whom) does exercising lead to better sleep.
