The goal of the 40Winks study is to evaluate and improve methods of measuring sleep at home, which may help inform the development of diagnostics and treatments that are user-friendly, cost-effective, and reliable.
How It Works
- Participants will be provided a wearable wrist device (Fitbit) and a bed sensor (Withings) which will be placed under your mattress.
- With your iPhone, you’ll download the study app and use it to complete a sleep diary.
- Over the course of two weeks, you’ll track, monitor, and share your sleep data via these devices.
- Participants will be compensated up to $150 for their time contributing to the study.
- Your participation can help determine the best use of new technologies to measure sleep at home. These technologies may be used in the future to help improve the sleep of people suffering from brain disorders.
- Using a sleep activity dashboard, you’ll gain a better understanding of your sleep patterns by tracking and reviewing your own sleep data.
- Healthy adult volunteers, or adults self-reporting insomnia
- Willing to participate for two weeks
- Male or female, 18-77 years of age, inclusive
- Participants need a reliable connection to the internet and must be willing to use their own iPhone as prescribed

Learn More About Clinical Trial Participation Opportunities
There are many different ways to find out about clinical research opportunities that might be of interest to you. Many doctors offices have brochures or advertisements about studies they are conducting or someone in their practice or hospital are conducting. A local study site might advertise on the radio or on the internet about their study. The sponsor of a study may have a website dedicated to informing people about the study. These websites may allow you to see if there is a study site near you.
Many patient advocacy groups also list available clinical studies on their websites. And finally, as all clinical studies of new treatments are required to be listed on a national registry, you can also search for your area of interest and “recruiting” or “not yet recruiting” at ClinicalTrials.gov.
Cohen Veterans Bioscience has several studies that are ongoing or about to start that you may be interested in learning more about.
The NNL is an ongoing study that is enrolling healthy volunteers to have a series of brain MRI scans taken in a single day to help build an understanding of what normal MRIs look like at different ages and in different sexes. This imaging reference library could be used to simply and objectively diagnose conditions like TBI and PTSD because having a library of normal brain scans can help define what is different in MRIs taken from people with PTSD or TBI.
