VIRTUAL Hope Center Clocks and Sleep Club: Erik Herzog (WashU Biology), Michael Hughes (WashU Medicine), Peinan Zhao (WashU Obstetrics/Gynecology) – “A Workshop: Time series analysis and measures from wearable devices”

September 11, 2020
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Zoom conference

“A Workshop: Time series analysis and measures from wearable devices”


This special workshop is hosted by the Hope Center Clocks & Sleep Club.

For those who have data collected over time, it can be helpful to evaluate periodic aspects in the data. This tutorial will introduce methods used to characterize rhythmic components in data. We will focus on daily and circadian rhythms and data such as wrist actigraphy and running wheel activity to answer questions like: Is there a significant rhythm? What is the chronotype? Is there evidence of chronodisruption?
