Objectives:A significant delay in the timing of endogenous circadian rhythms has been associated with Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder (DSPD). However, more recently other mechanisms have been proposed to account for the delay in the timing of patients’ sleep. To further explore the aetiology of DSPD, this prospective study compared nocturnal melatonin profiles of 11 DSPD patients and nine normally timed sleepers in a time-free, dim-light, laboratory environment.
