Dr. Heide Klumpp (PhD) and Dr. Alex Leow (PhD) at The University of Illinois at Chicago are conducting a research study on insomnia.

You may be eligible to participate if you:

  1. Are 18-45 years old.
  2. Suffer from insomnia.
  3. Have an Apple iPhone

If you are eligible and agree to participate you will undergo:

  1. A psychiatric interview.
  2. Wear a sleep watch weekly.
  3. Weekly clinical assessments.
  4. Four sessions with electroencephalography (EEG) to noninvasively measure brain function.
  5. Four neuropsychological assessments to measure concentration and attention.
  6. Use the BiAffect app to monitor your keyboard patterns in your phone.

Patients who are currently undergoing psychotherapy (talk therapy) or taking certain medications that affect the brain may not qualify for the study. The total time that you will be involved in this study is 8 visits during a 6-week period. You are expected to be in the study for about 13 hours. Volunteers will be compensated for their time.
