Psychophysiology and Sleep Assessment Laboratory

Psychophysiological assessment includes assessment of impedance cardiography via the COP-WIN system and electrocardiography and heart rate variability using the BIOPAC system within the context of resting and reactivty assessment. The laboratory allows for integration of inflammatory assessment with electrophysiological assessment of cardiovascular and autonomic funtion.

Sleep assessment is conducted at the UCLA General Clinical Research Center using Somnologica-based polysomnography. The Center includes three technicians trained in running sleep assessments, visual sleep scoring and nighttime heart rate variability.
