About our lab
Head of Lab - Professor Liat Tikotzky
The Parenting, Child Development and Sleep Lab engages in research on the links between parenting and children’s sleep in the context of developmental studies and sleep intervention studies.
We are also interested in understanding the characteristics of parents' sleep disturbances in the postpartum period. We study the implications of parental sleep disturbances on their emotional and cognitive functioning and on their relationship with their infant.
These processes are studied using objective and subjective sleep assessment methods in both two-parent and single-parent families.
