Abstract

Sleep and Movement Disorders is divided into four major sections and subsections preceded by an introductory essay to provide perspective on the subject. All chapters have been revised with new materials and references, and several chapters have been added to address recent advances, including new sleep-related disorders that have been classified and diagnosed, including catathrenia, alternating leg muscle activation (ALMA), propriospinal myoclonus (PSM) at sleep onset, and faciomandibular myoclonus at sleep onset. Further understanding of the pathophysiology of RLS-PLMS is addressed, as is the neurobiology of REM Behavior Disorder (RBD), both predictors of neurodegenerative diseases
