Attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), sleep intervention, genetics of sleep

Sleep deprivation has consequences for our health and daytime functioning. Reut Gruber, PhD, is examining the association between sleep and attention in infants, toddlers, children and adolescents, the role of sleep in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and the genetics of sleep.

It has been previously established that, although children with ADHD are hyperactive, they are actually hypoaroused (more tired, less alert) during the day. Treatment of sleep problems may improve the cognitive functioning and regulation of behavior of these children.

Reut Gruber’s is testing this hypothesis, with the aim to demonstrate a positive impact of sleep on the children’s concentration and behaviour. She is also involved with the Douglas’ sleep intervention programs and the day camp for children with ADHD.
