Associate Professor Leigh Signal

Associate Professor

Sleep/Wake Research Centre

Leigh is a Senior Research Officer and Associate Director at the Sleep/Wake Research Centre. She has workedat the centre since 1999 when she commenced her PhD. Her current research interests are broad but include sleep and fatigue in occupational environments, the sleep and health of mothers and their children, and laboratory studies to understand the processes driving sleep.

Research Expertise

Research Interests

Her current work is focused in three main areas: understanding the role of sleep and fatigue on performance and safety in applied settings, particularly in the aviation industry; characterising sleep across the perinatal period and the relationship with maternal health; and investigating the time course and magnitude of sleep inertia and changes to sleep at moderate altitudes under controlled laboratory conditions.  She is also interested in the role of sleep in infant and child health and development, and the links between sleep duration and performance and health outcomes.

Project Title: Sleep in Pregnancy & Postpartum: the relationship to maternal health

The aim of the present study is to investigate the relationship between sleep in late pregnancy and mode of delivery, and sleep early in the postpartum period and changes in postpartum mood. 500 Maori and 500 non-Maori women will be recruited into the study during late pregnancy, at which time they will complete a questionnaire on sleep, lifestyle, social support, mood and health. At 6 weeks postpartum women will be asked 3 questions on sleep via a telephone interview, and at 12 weeks postpartum they will complete a second questionnaire, similar to the first but also incorporating questions on the birth and infant. Information from the first questionnaire will be matched with birth data, and data from all questionnaires related to a measure of postpartum mood/depression. This research will be fundamental in advancing understanding of the links between maternal sleep, birth outcomes and postnatal mental health.

Project Title: Waking up can be hard to do: unravelling the dynamics of sleep inertia

Waking up is a process we all experience at least once a day, yet on some occasions it can seem difficult and take a significant amount of time. The confusion, grogginess, low arousal and reduced functioning experienced on awakening has been well documented and is known as sleep inertia. Previous research indicates that a number of factors can influence the severity and duration of the transition to full wakefulness. These include the stage of sleep a person wakes from, having more deep sleep, being awake for a long period of time prior to sleep, the time of day or night when awakening occurs, and the measure used to quantify sleep inertia. The proposed study involves naps of 20, 40 and 60 minutes ending at 1200 after 30 hours of wakefulness. Intensive testing will occur immediately following awakening to accurately measure sleep inertia. This study builds on our previous work to systematically manipulate the factors affecting the magnitude and time course of sleep inertia after naps at different times of the day and night. It will significantly advance basic scientific understanding of the dynamics of sleep inertia and is directly relevant to the issue of workplace napping in safety critical settings.

Project Title: Sleep during Pregnancy and Postpartum: The relationship with maternal health

These changes should be used to inform women about the extent of change in sleep, particularly early post-partum, and to help health-care providers identify women experiencing severe sleep loss and disruption and discuss possible coping strategies with them.
