Keeping your head cool when it's time to go to sleep appears to help those with insomnia.
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh outfitted twelve insomnia patients with a temperature controlled cap.
They slept two nights without the cap, two nights wearing it set at a neutral temperature, and two nights set at a cooler temperature.
Three-quarters said the cap helped them sleep better when set at the coolest temperature.
Study authors say further research in larger studies is needed to confirm their results.
