The aim of this study was to evaluate quantitatively the amplitude of the submentalis muscle EMG activity during sleep in controls and in patients with idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) or with RBD and multiple system atrophy (MSA). We recruited 21 patients with idiopathic RBD, 10 with MSA, 10 age‐matched and 24 young normal controls. The average amplitude of the rectified submentalis muscle EMG signal was used for the assessment of atonia and a Sleep Atonia Index was developed… Expand
