Thesis topic: Monitoring infant sleep and heart rate with a wearable sensor.

Sleep-wake state identification with the use of "actipants":

For my neuroscience thesis project, I am analyzing the feasibility of a motion sensor (Movesense) to record sleep-related respiration and heart rate in infants (0-4 months old). The aim of the research project is to develop wearable "actipants" to monitor and recognize sleep-wake patterns both in the sleep laboratory and in the infant's home environment.
