Although insomnia is a very frequent problem, we do not fully understand why it develops.  This project aims to elucidate factors involved in the development of insomnia as well as in the remission of it.  To this end, we are following   a large sample of adults over the course of one year to observe the development and remission of sleeping problems.  We have a particular focus on psychological factors related both to the development and remission of insomnia.
