From the Brain Injury Association of Wisconsin:

The Sleep Wellness Institute Research Study
Many people with a traumatic brain injury may feel sleepy during the day, even if the injury happened years ago. Researchers are inviting those with a traumatic brain injury who feel sleepy during the day to take part in a clinical study. This study will assess how well a study medicine works for people who feel sleepy during the day as a result of traumatic brain injury.
To qualify you must:  
• Be age 18 to 65
• Have had 1 traumatic brain injury in the past 10 years
• Feel sleepy or tired during the day 5 or more days a week on average
• Be willing to take medical tests and a study medicine for 12 weeks
• Be available to sleep overnight in a sleep lab 5 times (some sleep labs are similar to hotel rooms)
This study will last 14 to 16 weeks (approximately 88 hours total) and include:  
•  7 visits
• 4 phone contacts
• 4 overnight sleep studies
• 4 daytime studies, three of which follow the overnight studies
If you qualify:  
• You may learn more about your sleep patterns
• You will receive study-related medical care and study medicine at no cost
• You may or may not benefit from study medicine
• Compensation for time and travel may also be provided 
If interested in participating in this research study, please contact Skyler Baake at 414-328-5637, or Anne Papke at 414-477-4198,
