Aging is associated with specific sleep complaints, including earlier awakening and decreased sleep consolidation at the end of the night. The circadian pacemaker influences sleep timing and consolidation, and it has been hypothesized that a change in the circadian timing system may contribute to age-related changes in sleep. Here, we examined the relationship between circadian period and wake time, circadian phase, and diurnal preference (morningness-eveningness) in older subjects, and found… Expand
