Event-related potentials may be applied to directly measure information-processing deficits associated with the problem of insomnia. This study is a systematic investigation of cortical hyperarousal during the sleep-onset period in participants with sleep-onset insomnia complaints. Thirteen poor sleepers and twelve good sleepers (GS) were administered an oddball task while awake in the morning and evening and during repeated sleep-onset attempts. Participants signaled detection of a higher… Expand
