Insomnia Disorder can be diagnosed when insomnia symptoms are recurrent and persistent, cannot be attributed to sleep-disrupting circumstances, and are subjectively experienced as affecting daytime functioning. Insomnia Disorder is conceived as a disorder of hyperarousal - heightened cognitive, emotional, somatic and neurophysiological activation that interferes with the initiation and maintenance of sleep. Michele Colombo studies the neurophysiological dynamics and processes underlying Insomnia Disorder to help develop better biomarkers and treatments for the disorder.
