The School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences Colloquium Series 2017-2018.
Title: Mechanisms and Moderators of Sleep Health with Martica Hall, PhD
Department of Psychiatry
University of Pittsburgh
Dr. Hall’s research program bridges the traditionally independent fields of behavioral medicine and sleep medicine. Her research focuses on the pathways through which psychological and social factors interact with sleep to influence physical health and functioning.
She has studied these relationships in diverse populations across the lifespan, focusing mainly on mid- to late-life adults at increased risk for poor health outcomes including caregivers, women during the menopausal transition, individuals with sleep and psychiatric disorders, and adults affected by racial/social disparities.
She has given national and international workshops on the assessment of sleep in behavioral medicine research. Dr. Hall has also developed and refined innovative protocols for the assessment of ecologically valid and reliable measures of sleep health including ambulatory polysomnography, wrist actigraphy and heart rate variability during sleep.
