Conclusions:In contrast to community-based research, Black and White children showed similar sleep patterns. However, there were differences by race in referral questions and diagnoses. Findings suggest the need to consider caregiver perceptions and other sociocultural factors that may contribute to differential rates of presentation for sleep services, as well as potential health disparities in this regard.Citation:Williamson AA, Rubens SL, Patrick KE, Moore M, Mindell JA.

Sleep disorders are commonly found in cerebral degenerative disorders. The sleep disorders may be caused by the primary symptoms of the neurologic disease or may result from damage to sleep-controlling centers in the brain. Common sleep disorders found in this population include insomnia, hypersomnia, sleep apnea, restless legs syndrome, circadian rhythm disorders, and rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder. The latter disorder can present years before other neurologic symptoms or signs are present, serving as a precursor of neurodegenerative conditions. There is growing evidence that poor sleep leads to acceleration i...
