Cognitive and Behavioural Neuroscience
My research is aimed at expanding the evidence and understanding of the relationship between sleep and social recovery in psychosis. With a secondary aim of examining the mediating effects of changes in cognition as part of the causal pathway. The initiation of this research is based on the findings from my analysis of the National EDEN study, which provided evidence that duration of sleep contributes significantly to social recovery outcomes. The abundance of research reflecting the impact of sleep abnormalities on symptoms, cognition and daily function in individuals with psychosis, the absence of studies focused on the impact of changes in sleep on the recovery pathway, and compiled evidence of this as a bidirectional relationship, support the need for this to be further considered.
