Individualized and time-variant model for the functional link between thermoregulation and sleep onset.

Abstract

This study makes use of control system model identification techniques to examine the relationship between thermoregulation and sleep regulation. Specifically, data-based mechanistic (DBM) modelling is used to formulate and experimentally test the hypothesis, put forth by Gilbert et al., that there exists a connection between distal heat loss and sleepiness… (More)
