A patient walks into your clinic and describes unusual and bizarre nocturnal
movements three to four times each week. He has punched his wife during one
of these episodes and caused considerable facial trauma. Sleep and Movement Disorders is a new book that will help its readers
understand the physiology and management of this patient with rapid-eye-movement
(REM) sleep behavior disorder. The editors have created a comprehensive yet
concise multiauthor textbook that provides some of the latest insight into
the differential diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of these spells.
