Welcome to the Lincoln Sleep and Cognition Laboratory (the SaC)!  We are a dedicated research lab housed in the School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln, specialising in sleep research.

Our lab team is made up of staff and students from the School of Psychology. We also have close collaborations with colleagues in other departments here at the University of Lincoln and researchers at a range of other institutions across the world.

We benefit from a number of advanced facilities for sleep research housed in a control room and a separate dedicated bedroom.  These enable us to conduct studies with full polysomnography, actigraphy, home sleep monitoring, and computerised behavioural testing.

Our research covers a range of sleep-related topics, centred on two broad areas:-

  • The role of sleep in memory, cognition and neural reorganisation.
  • Sleep in society, including how we treat sleep disorders.

Please feel free to explore our website using the menu. If you are interesting in volunteering to take part in one of our studies, please see the opportunities page, view specific current projects looking for participants at the research participation page, or feel free to contact us using the form on the contact page, or by getting in touch with the lab director Dr Simon Durrant (SiDurrant@lincoln.ac.uk).
