Previous research has shown that people with complete cervical spinal cord injury (quadriplegia) commonly report sleep disturbances, have delayed REM latency and lack endogenous melatonin production. It is unclear if these findings are related. The aim of this study was to investigate whether nightly supplementation of 3 mg melatonin would induce, shift the phase of and/or modify subjective sleep for people with complete quadriplegia.
