Our scientific interests are mainly, but not exclusively related to sleep research, more specifically to the relationship between sleep, behaviour and psychological phenomena. According to our opinion sleep provides a perfect insight so as to understand human behaviour. The major focus of the laboratory is on the following topics:
- Sleep EEG, cognition and personality
- The neurophysiology and psychobiology of sleep and wakefulness
- Quantitative EEG methods
- Dreams and dreaming
- Development of sleeping
- Development of dreaming
