    bullet point  Testing a Neurobiological Model of Primary Insomnia (NEMO)
     
     
    Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic is seeking individuals ages 18-50, with or without difficulty sleeping.

    Participants need to be physically healthy and not currently taking any medications for psychiatric conditions.

    This study is a non-medication study, but does require eight nights in our sleep lab at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, during a period of several weeks.

    There are other procedures, such as paper questionnaires, on-line questionnaires, one MRI scan, four PET scans, urine drug screens and several blood draws. There will be one night and one day of sleep deprivation, during which participants stay in the lab and can watch DVDs or engage in quiet activities, other than sleeping.

    Participants will be reimbursed for their travel mileage at the current allowable rate and will also be compensated upon completion of the study.
