Gait and REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

Dec 23rd, 2021 - Many people with idiopathic rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) have an underlying synucleinopathy, the most common of which are Parkinson's disease (PD) and Lewy body disease. Identifying additional abnormal clinical features m...

Establish a National Registry of REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

Aug 6th, 2021 - REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a parasomnia characterized by abnormal behavioral manifestations during REM sleep. Accumulating evidence suggests that RBD is implicated as an integral part of disease progress of α-synucleinopathy neurodegener...

Search for Biomarkers of Neurodegenerative Diseases in Idiopathic REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

Aug 6th, 2021 - REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a parasomnia characterized by dream enactment behaviors and REM sleep without muscle atonia (excessive EMG activity) during REM sleep.Increasing studies revealed that iRBD eventually converts to α-synucleinopat...

Cardiac Changes in Early Parkinson's Disease: A Follow up Study

Jul 28th, 2021 - The purpose of this study is to investigate the long-term effects of treatment with the adrenergic blocker carvedilol on serial DaTscan, a dopamine transporter (DAT) single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) imaging technique in a pop...

Prodromal Markers of First-degree Relatives of Patients With Psychiatric Disorders Comorbid With RBD

May 26th, 2021 - REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a novel REM sleep parasomnia characterized by dream enacting behaviors and sleep-related injuries. Ample evidences have suggested that idiopathic RBD (iRBD) is a precursor of α-synucleinopathy neurodegeneration...
