The goal of this CME is to provide a participant-centered and case-based learning program to review neurological and sleep disorders where unusual behaviours are a key presenting symptom. Objectives:
1. Outline clinical considerations and diagnostic procedures in the diagnosis of parasomnia disorder, sleep-related movement disorders and narcolepsy.
2. Describe how sleep-related paroxysmal events of epileptic origin may be differentiated from those of non-epileptic origin.
3. Using the example of REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) and Parkinson’s Disease, the use of polysomnography as an early marker of neurodegeneration will be discussed.
4. Review case studies with unusual behaviours identified during EEG or polysomnography (PSG).
5.  Discuss the use, and usefulness, of novel off-the-shelf technology for assessing sleep.
