Waking Sound and Sleep Inertia Research study call for volunteer participants

April 3, 2019

DERC’s PhD member Stuart McFarlane is currently recruiting volunteer participants for the research study: Waking Sound and Sleep Inertia: A Heuristic Study for Designing Improved Auditory Waking Stimuli.

The study will be conducted at RMIT through the Digital Ethnography Research Centre (DERC), and the Bio-inspired Digital Sensing Lab (BIDS) and will test waking sound types and their effects on sleep inertia (morning grogginess).

Ideal participants will be 18+, healthy with good hearing, have a consistent sleeping pattern and must have access to a smart phone, computer tablet or laptop, and a secure internet connection.

This simple and intuitive study will be performed online by the participants in the comfort of their own home. Each morning study will not take any longer than 5 minutes. All information collected will be confidential.
