Adolescent Sleep and Media Use

 Jessica Levenson, PhD
 Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
 University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine




In this presentation, we will review the nature of adolescent sleep, adolescent media use, and their association. We will also discuss some potential mechanisms underlying the association between sleep and media use. We will review findings from recent work conducted here at the University of Pittsburgh on the association of sleep and media use among young adults, and we will explore clinical recommendations for limiting media use among youth. We will end by discussing novel applications for our findings, as well as potential next steps in research.
