FOR ADULTS OF ALL AGES

We are recruiting adults from 18-65 years old for a clinical trial. The purpose of this study is to see if Belsomra, an FDA approved medication that is prescribed to treat insomnia, changes the body’s response to stress. Participation in the study includes 3 or 5 in-person lab visits (depending on randomization), which include EEG and MRI.  Visits are flexible and scheduled at your convenience. Participants take the medication (or placebo) for 4 weeks, during which participation is only composed of virtual surveys via a smartphone app. The total length of participation in the study is 1.5-2 months depending on scheduling/availability.
