Intracortical imbalances in rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorders

Takeaway

  • People with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) may have intracortical imbalances that could indicate early neurodegeneration, warranting further investigation in longitudinal studies.

Why this matters

    RBD is a predictor of future neurodegeneration. This study identified electrophysiological measures of early intracortical dysfunction in people with RBD, that may be predict early neurodegeneration.
