The fundamental interest of the Sleep Laboratory and Health Promotion is the study of sleep from a multimodal perspective.
The negative repercussions that sleep disorders have on the daily functioning of many people make it a priority research topic.
Our goals are focused on knowing the subjective and objective characteristics of sleep of the general population, of people with some type of sleep impairment, or of people diagnosed with sleep disorders or chronic diseases.
In addition, we focus our efforts on knowing the impact of change in external conditions (noise, temperature…) and internal conditions (emotions, substances, pathologies…) on people’s sleep.
Our team diagnoses, treats and monitors the following sleep-related conditions and disorders:
- Excessive sleepiness.
- Movement disorders during sleep.
- Parasomnias (sleepwalking, talking, and abnormal sleep behavior).
- Restless legs syndrome.
- Sleep problems related to work schedules.
- Seizure disorders related to sleep apnea.
- Respiratory disorders related to sleep (e.g., snoring, sleep apnea, etc.).
- Circadian rhythm disorders.
- Sleep problems that have repercussions at work and social level (for example, absenteeism, school failure, traffic accidents, etc.).
