Example text

Violent DoA in adults can cause injury to a patient or bedpartner, and self-injury during a DoA may be misdiagnosed as suicide [87]. EEG during a DoA event in 38 adult sleepwalkers (mean age 29 years, 55 % men) was characterized by either regular rhythmic hypersynchronous delta or theta activity, or high amplitude delta intermixed with alpha or beta activity [85]. 7 shows a confusional arousal recorded from NREM 3 sleep in a 7-year-old boy. Studies comparing sleep microarchitecture and EEG power in adults with SW or STs with controls report that patients with SW/STs have (1) increased number of brief arousals from NREM 3 sleep especially during the first NREM cycle of a night; (2) reduced delta power of the slow wave activity especially during first NREM cycle; (3) slower decay of EEG delta power of NREM 3 sleep across recurring cycles of NREM sleep; and (4) alterations in cyclic alternating pattern during NREM sleep consistent with increased NREM 3 sleep instability.

Patients with RBD can also enact nonviolent dreams: singing, dancing, saluting, marching, clapping, or snapping their fingers [95]. Speech in RBD events can vary from mumbling to logical sentences. De Cock et al. found that 38 % of 53 PD patients moved much better and had louder, more intelligible speech during their RBD episodes than when awake [96]. RBD is also regarded as a dream disorder: patients report that the content of their dreams become increasingly violent and disturbed. Their dreams often involve frighteningly unfamiliar people or animals, confrontation, attacking or chasing themes, and the behaviors often depict the sleeper defending himself.
