Part 2 Sleep and Circadian Monitoring Study
Please note, Part 2 of the study is temporarily suspended in line with current public health guidelines. Participants who may be eligible for Part 2 will be contacted in due course. Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
The aim of Part 2 is to develop new methods to measure biological (circadian) rhythms to accurately detect underlying disruption of sleep and circadian patterns. To do this, the research study will measure a series of physiological and biological markers in Vision Impaired individuals experiencing disrupted circadian rhythms.
Part 2 of the study is divided into two separated phases:
- Part 2A involves collecting a series of urine samples to assess your biological circadian time.
- Part 2B involves spending two consecutive nights at the Blind Veterans UK centre to monitor biological, physiological and behavioural measures.
