REM Sleep Behavior Disorder in Parkinson’s Disease: Change in Cognitive, Psychiatric, and Functional Outcomes from Baseline to 16-47-Month Follow-Up
Rapid Eye Movement Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) is common in Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and is associated with cognitive impairment; however, the majority of the evidence on the impact of RBD on multidomain cognitive batteries in PD is cross-sectional. This study evaluated the longitudinal impact of probable RBD (pRBD) on cognitive, psychiatric, and functional outcomes in people with PD. Learn More

No exact cause has been found, but it is believed that genetic mutations or exposure to certain toxins or other environmental factors may possibly be contributory. Learn More
