Sleep-wake disorders

Sleep disorders are of significant importance for the neurologists. Neurologists should be aware and should play a major role for the evaluation and treatment of patients with sleep disorders. Examples include insomnias, sleep related breathing disorders, central hypersomnias like narcolepsy with cataplexy, circadian rhythm disorders, sleep related movement disorders (e.g. restless legs syndrome and periodic limb movements) and parasomnias (e.g. REM behaviour disorder, arousal and seizure disorders). Patients with neurological disorders often suffer from sleep disorders, e.g. sleep related breathing disorders in stroke and neuromuscular diseases, REM Behaviour Disorder in Parkinsonism. There is significant progress in the understanding of sleep-wake mechanism, the influence of sleep on health and disease, diagnostic and treatment modalities.

The aim of the EAN Scientific Panel on Sleep-wake disorders is to increase awareness of sleep disorders in relation to neurology. This is accomplished by:

  1. Coordinating sleep medicine research, diagnostic and treatment guidelines.
  2. Arrange courses, focused workshops and symposia dedicated to sleep medicine.
  3. Stimulating research activities.


Moreover tight collaboration is being established with the European Sleep Research Society.
