About our lab

Head of Lab - Professor Liat Tikotzky

The Parenting, Child Development and Sleep Lab engages in research on the role of parents in child sleep development. 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 the context of longitudinal designs in both two-parent and single-parent families.
