RE: Masks and hair curlers
What a great idea iSnooze! I'll make sure that I go down there with curlers in my hair.

Thanks for the help,

RE: Masks and hair curlers
I wonder how many other people have done shown up with curlers in their hair.

I know that we are supposed to sleep like we normally do when we have the sleep and triation study but it is difficult to do that with all the wires attached along with sleeping in a strange location with someone watching you throughout the night.

Good luck with your study and let us know how it goes.

RE: Masks and hair curlers
Actually, the technicians probably wouldn't be happy to see those curlers in your hair. They have to attach electrodes to your scalp. On the other hand, the curlers may make it easier to attach the electrodes as the regions between the curlers may make good attachment points.

I realized after I sent that last message that it probably wouldn't work because of the sensors that they attach to your head. Oh well,.

I have another question, but I'll post it under a new subject line.

Just because you should be ready for sleep doesn't invite you to actually show up in your pyjamas.
