All subjects will have a stable sleep/wake schedule with a preferred sleep phase between 10:00 PM and 8:00 AM. The age range is restricted to 1) minimize circadian rhythm influences on the diagnoses of Psychophysiological insomnia, 2) to increase our ability to recruit medically healthy sample, and 3) increase sample homogeneity.
