Predicting the progression of REM sleep behavior disorder into neurodegenerative disease

Takeaway

  • Stratifying patients with idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder (iRBD) by their cognitive neuropsychological profile is a useful approach to predict phenoconversion into neurodegenerative disease.

Why this matters

  • Cognitive profiling of patients with iRBD may help identify patients at the greatest risk for phenoconversion, but further study of the cognitive profile of iRBD is needed
