REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is characterized by the intermittent absence of REM sleep EMG atonia and the appearance of elaborate motor activity associated with dream mentation. There are no specific diagnostic criteria for RBD based upon polysomnographic findings. We describe a new scoring method and show its sensitivity to treatment with clonazepam. An increased phasic submental EMG density occurs in RBD patients, but REM density is similar to that of controls. Clonazepam selectively… Expand
REM Sleep Behavior Disorder in Narcolepsy with Cataplexy
TLDR
Several clinical and polysomnographic aspects seem to differentiate RBD in patients with narcolepsy from idiopathic or secondary RBD, suggesting the involvement of specific neurophysiological, neurochemical and neuropathological substrates. Expand

REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), formally recognized in the 1980s, is an infrequent but spectacular parasomnia characterized by dream enactment, leading to aggressive or complex behaviors. ItExpand
Clinical neurophysiology of REM parasomnias.
TLDR
The main neurophysiologic findings in REM sleep parasomnias are described and their implications and relevance are discussed. Expand
REM sleep behavior disorder: clinical and physiopathological findings.
TLDR
Since this polygraphic finding may be present in subjects without any sleep complaint and in patients with initial neurological impairment, diagnosis of the sleep disorders might be allowed only when the polygraphic characteristic of persistent tonus and complex motor behavior are recorded. Expand
Diagnosis of REM sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
Diagnosis of REM sleep behavior disorder Ji Eun Kim, M.D., PhD says sleep related injurious, potentially injury, or disruptive behaviors by history and characteristic polysomnographic findings are essential for diagnosis of RBD. Expand
REM Sleep Behavior Disorder
TLDR
This work has suggested future hope of neuroprotective treatment in some RBD patients who are considered in early stages of these neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson disease, dementia with Lewy bodies (LBD), and multiple system atrophy. Expand
Melatonin therapy for REM sleep behavior disorder
Rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a parasomnia with clinical symptoms that include punching, kicking, yelling and leaping out of bed in sleep. Polysomnographic (PSG) finding showedExpand
REM sleep behavior disorder as a prodromal Parkinson's disease feature
TLDR
Management of RBD revolves around optimizing safety of the patient and bed partner using nonpharmacologic means as well as melatonin and/or clonazepam. Expand
Treatment of REM Sleep Behavior Disorder
TLDR
There is no clear evidence of beneficial effect of bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation despite the improvement of the sleep architecture, and the effect of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and dopaminergics on RBD symptoms needs future validation. Expand
REM Behavior Disorder in Adults
TLDR
Given the relationship of RBD to neurodegenerative conditions, RBD represents a unique opportunity to understand the neuroanatomical basis for REM sleep-related mechanisms and may be a leading indicator for patients who may benefit from neuroprotective treatments for these neurodegnerative diseases.

Periodic leg movements in sleep
TLDR
Treatment with 0.5 to 2 mg clonazepam improved subjective complaints and decreased the number of leg movements without affecting the intermovement interval or movement duration. Expand
REM sleep without atonia after lesions of the medial medulla
TLDR
Glutamate-induced lesions of the medial medulla, including the nucleus magnocellularis, caudal nucleus gigantocellularIS and rostral nucleus paramedianus, produce REM sleep without atonia, suggesting these nuclei may function as part of a ponto-medullary system suppressing muscle tone in REM sleep. Expand
Clonazepam treatment of insomnia due to sleep myoclonus.
TLDR
Small doses of clonazepam, 1 mg, before retiring were found to specifically control the myoclonus and allow sleep patterns to return to normal. Expand
Nocturnal myoclonus: treatment efficacy of clonazepam and temazepam.
TLDR
The data support clinical reports that clonazepam, a benzodiazepine marketed for the indication of seizure, is useful in improving sleep disturbances associated with nocturnal myoclonus and suggest the need for a model that explains why leg movements and sleep disturbances may wax and wane independently. Expand
The relationship of excessive exploratory behavior in wakefulness to paradoxical sleep without atonia.
TLDR
The argument that peripheral motor inhibition during PS depends on suppression of a brainstem locomotor region in addition to direct inhibition of spinal motor neurons is developed. Expand
Temporal sequence and unit composition in dream reports from different stages of sleep.
TLDR
The results suggest that most inter-stage differences in dream "quality" are, in fact, by-products of inter- stage differences indream quantity, but that there are residual stage differences that can coherently be attributed neither to differences in the continuity with which dream production processes are activated in different stages nor to Differences in dream retrieval from different stages.

Sleep apnea and periodic movements in an aging sample.
TLDR
The home recording indicated that the individuals with PMS slept significantly less than other older adults, and these were not clinical diagnoses. Expand
Elimination of paradoxical sleep by lesions of the pontine gigantocellular tegmental field in the cat
  • B. Jones
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Neuroscience Letters
  • 1979
TLDR
These results indicate that neurons whose perikarya and/or processes are located within the pontine gigantocellular tegmental field and which are not part of the noradrenaline locus coeruleus complex, are critical for paradoxical sleep. Expand
A re-evaluation of the effects of lesions of the pontine tegmentum and locus coeruleus on phenomena of paradoxical sleep in the cat.
TLDR
The conclusion drawn from these experiments and from a review of the literature is that the hypotheses stating that the locus coeruleus or other isolated nuclei of the pons are specifically concerned with the initiation of paradoxical sleep are not clearly supported by available evidence. Expand
