Researchers explore the epigenetics of daytime sleepiness

A new, multi-ethnic study led by investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital explores associations between daytime sleepiness and epigenetic modifications — measurable, chemical changes that may be influenced by both environmental and genetic factors. The team finds tantalizing clues about Excessive Daytime Sleepiness, laying a foundation for larger scale studies of diverse populations.
