Male Volunteers for UniSA Sleep Study Urgently Required for Jan Feb 2015

University of South Australia researchers are urgently looking for male volunteers to participate in their January and February sessions of their  sleep study “The impact of sleeping during the day on metabolism, performance and mood”

Dr Siobhan Banks and colleagues at the Centre for Sleep Research are seeking healthy, non-diabetic, non-smoking, males aged between 18 and 45 years to help determine the effect of sleeping during the day (simulated shift work) on metabolism, performance and mood, as well as the effect of night-time eating on metabolism, peripheral clock gene expression, and central clock (melatonin) outputs. They also want to examine the effects of four nights of simulated shift work on hormonal and immune functioning.

All meals will be provided and men will be reimbursed $700 for their participation which is required over 6 consecutive days in the UniSA sleep laboratory for the following two study sessions:

Friday 16th – Thursday 22nd January 2015

Tuesday 17th – Monday 23rd February 2015

Please pass around to your students, colleagues and friends who may be interested in being involved in this interesting men’s health study.
