Dr. Buysse's research interests focus on insomnia, sleep in aging, and sleep in
psychiatric disorders, particularly sleep in depression. This work includes the assessment,
diagnostic reliability, and pharmacologic treatment of insomnia; circadian aspects of
age-related sleep changes; and sleep correlates of treatment outcome in depression.
His research has been supported by grants from the National Institute of Mental Health,
the National Institute of Aging, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration,
and the MacArthur Foundation.
