The overall objective of the project is to investigate the link between stress, sleep fragmentation and functional capacity, linked to various neurotransmitters in the brain. It also includes attempts to experimentally fragmented sleep to simulate the same levels of fragmentation as shown in patients suffering from burnout. The project is carried out several studies to examine how stress causes physiological sleep disorders. The expected results from the project will generate both scientific articles and popular scientific summaries.
