A strong association exists between disorders of sleep (e.g., REM-behavior disorder) and neurodegenerative conditions, particularly synucleinopathies. The appearance of sleep disturbances may precede other symptoms by decades. Recognition of this connection is important in patient care for management, surveillance, and future research.


  • Understand recent advances on animal research linking sleep regulation and human disease.
    Recognize the connection between sleep disorders and neurodegenerative disease.
    Discuss long term patient treatment/management in the context of both sleep and neurodegenerative disorders.
