The ubiquitous nature of electronic devices has undoubtedly changed how we live. In particular, the use of devices in bed has become common. However, the extent of this bedtime use and how it impacts sleep in adolescents is understudied and hindered by poor measurement techniques.

This within-person longitudinal study aims to provide objective data on how different screen-use habits influence sleep in 11–14-year-old adolescents. Brad will introduce the BED study and outline how he is using the power of technology to assess different screen behaviours and how they affect sleep during an important phase of growth and maturation.
