Sleep disorders imaging identifies brain conditions risk

  • 1 Comment

The risk of developing degenerative brain conditions can be identified among people with sleep disorders by neuroimaging, European research has found.

It has been reported previously that rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorder could be an early predictor of neurodegenerative disorders.

The research, carried out in Barcelona, has identified which people with this condition are most likely to experience the disorders. By using neuroimaging techniques, the researchers found it was possible to identify neurodegenerative diseases at preclinical stages.
