In a world-first study, Flinders Postdoctoral Research Associate Dr Nicole Lovato is recruiting patients to test the role of brief daytime sleeps as an adjunct therapy to improve the success of sleep restriction therapy, a main behavioural treatment for insomnia. While sleep restriction is highly effective, Dr Lovato said many insomniacs struggle to adhere to the therapy due to significant daytime sleepiness. Unlike hour-long afternoon naps which can interfere with night-time sleep, Dr Lovato said short 20-minute sleeps result in immediate, short-term benefits that do not impact on sleep at night. She said it is hoped the findings will uncover a new drug-free adjunct treatment to behavioural therapy. This restriction of time in bed builds up their homeostatic need for sleep and helps them sleep across the night,” she said.
