  • The Impact of 8 Weeks of Digital Meditation Application and Healthy Eating Program on Work Stress and Health Outcomes

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The aim of the present study is to test the effects of a digital meditation intervention and/or a healthy eating intervention in a sample of UCSF employees with overweight and obesity (BMI>=25kg/m2) who report mild to moderate stress. We will randomize UCSF employees to 8-weeks of a digital meditation intervention (using the commercially available application, Headspace), a healthy eating intervention, a digital meditation+healthy eating intervention, or a waitlist control condition.

  • Napping, Sleep, Cognitive Decline and Risk of Alzheimer's Disease

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This study aimed to pilot test a non-pharmacological (behavioral) treatment program targeting improved cognition through improving 24-h sleep-wake cycle in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or mild Alzheimer's disease. A treatment program incorporating bright light therapy and a modified cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia will be developed to address 24-hour patterns of sleep. We will then pilot test its feasibility and explore its preliminary effects on improving sleep/napping and cognition in patients with MCI or mild Alzheimer's disease.

  • Summertime: Kids in Motion

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a 3-week randomized crossover study to determine the effect of the prior night's sleep duration on energy-balance related behaviors of diet and physical activity the following day. In Week 1, child participants will sleep their usual amount. In week 2, participants will be randomized to either a sleep restricted or a healthy sleep condition for 4 nights. In week 3, participants will cross over to the opposite sleep condition for 4 nights.
