Sleep medicine is a burgeoning field, owing to the fact that several sleep disorders may cause and/or exacerbate serious conditions like psychiatric disorders, cardiovascular disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and obesity and lead to an overall reduction of quality of life. Also, poor sleep increases community costs due to increased motor vehicle accidents and loss in productivity. Furthermore, while chronic sleep deprivation leads to a significant loss of quality of life, short-term sleep deprivation is a powerful therapeutic option for depression - which emphasises the very complex and still not fully understood interaction between the physiology of sleep and psychiatric disorders.

This Research Topic covers recent and upcoming breakthroughs in (digital) sleep therapies, biomarkers for sleep disorders, the interaction between sleep disorders and psychiatric disorders, sleep deprivation as a therapeutical intervention, geographic, gender and age-related variance in sleep disorders, quality of sleep, quality of life, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on sleep problems.

More specifically, the goal of this Research Topic is to provide a state-of-the-art assessment of the issues associated with sleep disorders exploring diagnosis, biomarkers, interventions, and treatments.

We invite researchers to submit a range of articles including but not limited to original research articles, reviews, opinions, perspectives, and case reports on the following:

• Digital interventions to improve sleep disorders.
• Biomarkers for sleep disorders.
• The interaction between sleep disorders and psychiatric disorders (i.e. mental health risk factors for sleep disorders as well as the exacerbation of psychiatric disorders through sleep disorders).
• Geographic, gender and age-related variation in sleep disorders.
• Sleep disorders and quality of life.
• The influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on sleep disorders.
• Explorations of both long and short-term therapy and treatment programs for sleep disorders.
• Explorations of the therapeutical effect of sleep deprivation.
• How can technology affect sleep quality.

Keywords: Sleep Disorders, Diagnosis, Biomarkers, Interventions and Treatments, sleep deprivation
