- SLEEP/WAKE RHYTHMS IN AGING--TREATMENT WITH NIMODIPINESusan Benloucif; Fiscal Year: 2002..The results of the animal and human experiments are designed to determine if nimodipine can enhance the effectiveness of light therapy for sleep/wake disorders in elderly humans. ..
- RESPONSIVENESS OF THE AGING CIRCADIAN CLOCK TO LIGHTSusan Benloucif; Fiscal Year: 2004..The proposed experiments will provide a vast amount of data in which to better understand the effect of age on circadian rhythms and sleep and lead to improved treatments for circadian rhythm and sleep disorders in older adults. ..
