Welcome to the Sleep, Eating, and

Affect (SEA) Lab at the UCSF Osher Center

Research in the SEA Lab focuses on the biological, behavioral, and psychological experiences of sleep, eating, and psychological affect. The SEA Lab seeks to improve assessment and intervention in these areas by using diverse research approaches. Our overarching goal is to develop mind-body interventions that empower individuals to improve their health and wellbeing without drugs. Learn more about our research here.


We are currently recruiting for a study to test a combination of whole-body hyperthermia (WBH) and cognitive behavioral intervention in the treatment of clinical depression. To learn more about this clinical trial, please visit our HEAT BED study page.


Dr. Mason also offers clinical services for individuals struggling with sleep. Dr. Mason is not currently accepting patients seeking treatment for other conditions. Please visit the Sleep Group portion of our website to learn more about this clinical service.
