Altered Sleep Physiology in a Mouse Model of Heritable Parkinson’s Disease: Implications for Preclinical EEG

Primary Speaker: Lindsey Crown, M.S. Department of Psychology


  1. Integrate case presentations with critical evaluation of evidence-based literature to appraise novel medical treatment protocols and intervention skills so that patient management and outcomes can be continually and appropriately enhanced.
  2. Critically evaluate evidence-based literature in order to incorporate appropriate best practices into the clinical care of patients with mood, anxiety, psychosis and other psychiatric disorders.
  3. Examine patients and utilize current literature, hone diagnostic skills and update therapeutic knowledge so that patient management and outcomes are improved.

Following participation in this activity, the participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the similarities and differences between LRRK2 Parkinson Disease and idiopathic Parkinson Disease.
  2. Outline the circuits involved in both sleep and Parkinson Disease and the relationship between disordered sleep and Parkinson Disease.
  3. Explain what sleep spindles are and how they may be a useful pre-clinical marker for LRRK2 Parkinson Disease.

Lunch will be served
