Abstract

Sleep plays an essential role in memory consolidation. Although sleep problems are common in Alzheimerʼs disease, they are not usually thought to be key features of the disease; however, new experimental research has shown that sleep disturbances not only occur before the onset of typical cognitive deficits but are also associated with the pathogenesis of Alzheimerʼs disease and may have a decisive influence on the symptoms and course. Thus, sleep disturbances may be potentially modifiable risk factors for Alzheimerʼs disease that deserve more attention in research, diagnostics and treatment.
