Arbeitsgruppe Schlaf - Research Division Sleep

 

Unsere Arbeitsgruppe befasst sich mit Störungen von Schlaf und Wachsein. Unsere wissenschaftlichen Interessen liegen im Bereich Tagesschläfrigkeit und gestörte Motorik im Schlaf bei Morbus Parkinson, Restless Legs Syndrom, Narkolepsie, und REM-Schlaf-Verhaltensstörung. Wir untersuchen auch neue Technologien zur Messung motorischer Störungen im Schlaf.

Our research group is devoted to disorders of sleep and wakefulness. Main research interests: daytime sleepiness and motor disorders of sleep in Parkinson´s disease, Restless legs Syndrome, narcolepsy and REM sleep behavior disorder.  We also investigate new technologies for the assessment of motor disorders during sleep.

Transient restless legs syndrome after spinal anesthesia - a prospective study
Neurology 2002; 59:1705-1707
This study shows that new-onset transient restless legs syndrome occurs in 8.7 % of the patients undergoing surgery in spinal anesthesia

Chaudhuri KR, Pal S, DiMarco A, Whately-Smith C, Bridgman K, Mathew R, Pezzela FR, Frobes A, Högl B, Trenkwalder C:The Parkinson´s disease sleep scale (PDSS): a new instrument for assessing sleep and nocturnal disability in Parkinson´s disease. J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 2002; 73:629-635
This is a description of the first bedside screening questionnaire for sleep disturbances in patients with Parkinson´s disease, and its validation

Högl B, Seppi K, Brandauer E, Glatzl S, Frauscher B, Niedermüller U,
Wenning G, Poewe W: Increased daytime sleepiness in Parkinson´s disease: a questionnaire survey. Mov Disord. 2003;18:319-23.
This study provides evidence, that sleep disordered breathing contributes to excessive daytime sleepiness in Parkinson´s disease

Högl B, Peralta C, Wetter T, Gershanik O, Trenkwalder C: The effect of total and partial sleep deprivation on motor performance in patients with Parkinson´s disease. Movement Disorders 2001; 16:616-621
This study shows that total and partial sleep deprivation does not improve morning motor function in patients with Parkinson´s disease.

Gershanik OS: A clinical, polysomnographic and pharmacologic study of sleep benefit in Parkinson´s disease. Neurology 1998; 50:1332-1339

This is the only polysomnographic study of sleep benefit in Parkinson´s disease. Sleep benefit was not related to distinct sleep patterns, but to pharamcodynamic mechanisms.
