Sex Differences in Perceptions of Sleep Inertia Following Nighttime Awakenings

Dr. Cassie Hilditch, guest

In this episode, our host is joined by Dr. Cassie Hilditch to discuss the recently published article in the journal SLEEP Advances, entitled “Sex differences in perceptions of sleep inertia following nighttime awakenings”. This investigation aimed to advance the understanding of the relationships between individual traits and sleep inertia, as well as sleep inertia broadly, by investigating the role of biological sex on the subjective experience and objective cognitive manifestation of sleep inertia following nighttime awakenings.
