GRAPHIC SLIDE: Paul Albert, Ph.D.

Dr. Albert on camera.

Dr. Paul Albert: It’s still going on. But what we found out is that we can recover sleep/wake cycle very well from this, so we are now going to use that. And also what this study is doing is—we just use 7 days where they measure the watch, but this study is multiyear, so these kids are being brought back at every year. And we are going to be able to see how their sleeping tracks over time, so if you have an adolescent in the tenth grade and they sleep irregularly, do they tend to sleep irregularly 2 years later? So we’re still in the process of uncovering some of those kind of results.
