Sleep Review expresses our condolences for the death of pioneering sleep researcher Arthur J. Spielman, PhD, whose obituary was published in the New York Times on July 26, 2015.

Art worked at the first sleep center in the United States, his development of Sleep Restriction Therapy is a core component of insomnia treatment, and what became known as the Spielman 3P Model of Insomnia remains a cornerstone of the field. Art had a long association with Cornell, most recently as Co-Director of the Weill Cornell Center for Sleep Medicine.
