When telephone lines go down, or Internet connections are lost, our communities temporarily come to a halt. What if something similar were found to be happening in Parkinson's? This is the focus of Dr. Schmitz and her team at the PDF Research Center at Columbia University Medical Center.

Idiopathic rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (iRBD) is a well-documented risk factor for synucleinopathies such as Parkinson disease (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Moreover, approximately 50% of iRBD patients have mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The purpose of our study was to investigate waking electroencephalogram (EEG) abnormalities specific to iRBD patients with MCI.
