Normal sleep patterns and prevalence of sleep disorders in the general population are largely unknown. The aim of HypnoLaus cohort study is to record sleep and analyze sleep characteristics in a large population-based sample, which had undergone comprehensive genetic, somatic, and psychiatric investigations. Full polysomnography has already been performed in more than 1100 middle aged men and women randomly selected from Lausanne general population (goal 2000-3000 sleep recordings). Over 4000 additional subjects from the same population have filled various questionnaires on their sleep habits and complaints. These results combined with genetic, cardiovascular, metabolic, and psychiatric data provide a unique opportunity to determine the interaction between sleep, its genetic determinants and cardiovascular, psychiatric, or metabolic diseases.
