Abstract

Chronodisruption describes the discrepancy between biologically determined sleep-wake preferences and socially enforced schedules. College students may be prone to chronodisruption as they adopt less structured schedules and widely variable start times. The current study will measure chronodisruption by analyzing discrepancies between preferred and actual wake times. The current study will consider links between developmental and environmental factors (e.g., year in school and residential status) and chronodisruption, as well as how chronodisruption relates to mental and physical health among a sample of college students.
