For my research I mainly use the electroencephalogram (EEG) to investigate sleep, external skin temperature sensors (iButtons) in order to analyze the skin temperature, as well as the Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) to examine salivary hormone concentrations. Using these methods, I investigate the impact of evening light exposure on chronobiological markers (i.e., body temperature, melatonin- and cortisol concentration) in relation to sleep, as well as the relationship between evening light exposure, emotion regulation and sleep.
