Polysomnograph System

This state-of-the-art cart-based Polysomnograph by Compumedics is housed at the Center for Translational Research in Aging and Longevity (CTRAL) and is able to measure a host of physiological parameters while participants are asleep. Some of the measurements include:
  • EEG indices to determine neural sleep architecture
  • Oculography for eye movement
  • Breathing indices (e.g., respiration bands, nasal cannula)
  • Cardiovascular measures (e.g., Oximeter, heart rate)
  • Electromyography sensors for legs and chin
  • Tracheal microphone
