© 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. This chapter provides an overview of the assessment methods used to examine sleep. We focus on techniques that are commonly employed to diagnose sleep disorders, evaluate treatment response, and summarize investigative methods adopted by sleep scientists. This chapter covers the following practices: polysomnography, actigraphy, brain imaging, hormone assessment, and subjective measures including self-report questionnaires and sleep diaries. These measures enable sleep scientists to further understand the role of sleep in human behavior.
