REM Sleep Behavior Disorder: A Neurologic Dissociative Sleep Disorder by Niels C. Rattenborg
This is ONE OF a series of review papers required of first year medical students at Indiana University School of Medicine as part of the Medical Neurobiology course. They were done over a period of years and are meant to act as a review for a variety of nervous system diseases. Since one of the objectives of a neuroscience course is to develop a language (vocabulary) of both neuroanatomy and clinical neurology, these papers served the purpose of breaching the basic science and the ability to understand clinical textbooks and research papers. Although editing was done, there may be errors. Hopefully, these subjects will assist further students' to gain insight into a variety of clinical disorders.
The following is a review of another recently described REM sleep boundary disorder called REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD). RBD is characterized by the acting-out of violent dreams during REM sleep, often with injurious consequences (Schenck et al. 1986, 1987).
