Effects of Eszopiclone on Sleep-dependent Learning in Schizophrenia

2014-08-27 03:24:40 | BioPortfolio


This study will determine whether eszopiclone will normalize sleep patterns and restore sleep-dependent enhancement of motor skill learning in patients with schizophrenia. The investigators will compare subjects taking a placebo to those taking 3 mg of eszopiclone with regard to: sleep architecture and sleep latency as measured by actigraphy and polysomnography and sleep-dependent motor skill learning.
