Laboratory of Sleep Studies

The Sleep Studies Research Center was established under the leadership of Dr. Tahmasian at the Research Institute of Medical Sciences and Technologies and today coordinates sleep studies in the global ENIGMA project. This global project, involving hundreds of neuroscientists around the world, focuses on the study of brain MRI images and their relationship to genetics and clinical signs. The project is centered at the University of Southern California and is led by Professor Paul Thompson. Recently, a sleep study laboratory has been built with a polysomnograph device with 32 electroencephalographic channels and the ability to record other physiological parameters in the research institute.
