DGSOM WMD twitter logo

If you are experiencing moderate-to-severe depression for at least six months and are between 20-64 years old, you may be eligible to participate in a total sleep deprivation study at UCLA. 

  • Our study is looking at how one night of sleep deprivation relates to changes in mood, brain chemistry and function, and gene regulation.
  • The study involves 4 visits to our laboratory over the course of 1 month. One visit includes staying awake overnight in the laboratory. 
  • The study involves 2 brain scans and multiple blood draws, as well as wearing an activity-tracker and logging daily mood on your phone for 2 weeks. 
  • Patients must be diagnosed with depression, able to undergo MRI scanning, and not be using illicit substances. 
  • Participants can earn up to $790 for completing all appointments. 

Please call 310-825-4875 or e-mail to speak to the Sleep Study Coordinator.
