The purpose of this study is to assist training doctors about different diseases of the nervous system affecting sleep.
Patients selected to participate in this study will have any of a variety of sleep disorders. They will undergo several tests including an overnight recording of brain activity, eye movement, leg movement, breathing, heart rate, and other measures.
Results of these tests will be used to better understand diseases causing sleep disorders and may be used to develop better treatments for them.
The objective of this protocol is to provide training in a broad range of neurological sleep disorders to clinical associates who are eligible for sitting in the Board examination of the Added Qualification of Clinical Neurophysiology administered by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. This protocol is to supplement small accrual of research patients who are referred from within the NIH.

Disorders characterized by hypersomnolence during normal waking hours that may impair cognitive functioning. Subtypes include primary hypersomnia disorders (e.g., IDIOPATHIC HYPERSOMNOLENCE; NARCOLEPSY; and KLEINE-LEVIN SYNDROME) and secondary hypersomnia disorders where excessive somnolence can be attributed to a known cause (e.g., drug affect, MENTAL DISORDERS, and SLEEP APNEA SYNDROME).

Chronically depressed mood that occurs for most of the day more days than not for at least 2 years. The required minimum duration in children to make this diagnosis is 1 year. During periods of depressed mood, at least 2 of the following additional symptoms are present: poor appetite or overeating, insomnia or hypersomnia, low energy or fatigue, low self esteem, poor concentration or difficulty making decisions, and feelings of hopelessness. (DSM-IV)
Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
