Sleep laboratory

A sleep lab is where the most controlled sleep and dream experiments take place. They have at least one bed where participants in the experiment can sleep, and polysomnography equipment that will monitor their physiology as they sleep. The irony of sleep research is that when you do it you don’t get much sleep yourself, as you end up staying up all night to monitor your participants’ sleep.
