UNLABELLED OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE: This review article used data from an extensive literature search (including MEDLINE database searches) to explore the relationships between sleep, memory and Alzheimer's disease (AD). The importance of taking into account circadian rhythmicity and acetylcholine (ACh) levels when considering acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, galantamine in particular, in the treatment of patients with AD is discussed. REVIEW FINDINGS Moderate changes of circadian rhythms may… CONTINUE READING
