Our Studies

About Our Research

The Richards Lab is located at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the University of California, San Francisco. Our lab is dedicated to deepening our understanding of sleep disturbance in PTSD and to developing effective, personalized treatments targeting individual patients' sleep profiles. Current projects examine the role of sleep in emotional information processing, study the biology of PTSD nightmares and nightmare enactment, and examine the effectiveness of medication treatments for sleep disturbance in people with a history of psychological trauma and/or PTSD.
