Some Information on the National Sleep Research Resource (NSRR):

The [sleepdata.org]National Sleep Research Resource (NSRR) is an NHLBI-supported repository for sharing large amounts of sleep data (polysomnography, actigraphy and questionnaire-based) from multiple cohorts, clinical trials, and other data sources. Launched in April 2014, the mission of the NSRR is to advance sleep and circadian science by supporting secondary data analysis, algorithmic development, and signal processing through the sharing of high-quality data sets.
