N7 - Neuroscience in the Clinic: REM Sleep Behavior Disorder: Past, Present, Future

Event Time: Friday April 27, 2018 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Sleep
Director(s): Phyllis Zee MD, PhD, Aleksandar Videnovic MD, MSc, FAAN
Description: REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) is a parasomnia characterized by dream enactment in the context of loss of physiological atonia during REM sleep. RBD is of particular importance to neurosciences as it is one of the earliest manifestations of a-synuclein related neurodegeneration. Over 80% of patients with idiopathic RBD eventually develop Parkinson’s disease, dementia with Lewy body or multiple system atrophy. This program with highlight clinical aspects of the disorder, its historical perspective, as well as novel findings related to the pathophysiology of the disorder and its relationship with neurodegenerative disorders.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to recognize clinical characteristics, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and treatment of RBD; understand novel advances in the pathophysiology of RBD; and discuss the association between RBD and ?-synucleinopathies.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice
