Actigraphy data in pediatric research : the role of sleep diaries
Actigraphy and sleep diary
Background. When assessing children's sleep using actigraphy, researchers usually rely on a sleep diary completed by a parent as an aid in scoring actigraphic data. However, parental nonadherence in completing the sleep ...
