- Purpose - to validate a combination of biological and clinical markers in the rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) population as indicative of the pre-symptomatic stage of Parkinson's disease (PD).
- Procedures - All subjects (RBD diagnosis, PD diagnosis and controls) will have 1) a medical and neuro history and physical including videotape of movements, 2) neuropsychological testing, 3) a sleep study, 4) olfactory testing, 5) blood draw for serum testing , 6) functional MRI, & 7) eye tracking test. All of these procedures are often performed clinically in the diagnosis of PD. Any testing performed prior to enrollment as part of the clinical evaluation may be used in place of repeating the procedure for the study. Subjects will be followed for 5 years. It is hypothesized that a 5 year follow up may capture a significant number of pre-Parkinson's subjects who will be diagnosed.

polysomnographically diagnosed RBD patients. RBD is a sleep disorder diagnosed by a sleep lab in which the individual has muscle movements during the phase of deep sleep during which the muscles should be relaxed. Suspicion of RBD by history will be confirmed during screening.
2 - control
- Identify the key cognitive and non-motor characteristics for early PD diagnosis [ Time Frame: 5 years ]periodically performed set of clinical and imaging parameters suspected to be linked to PD to see if, as a group, these parameters could identify those at risk for motor symptoms of PD before these symptoms develop.
- Further characterize the sleep behavior patterns, olfactory function, and neurologic assessments of subjects longitudinally, over 5 years, within each group of patients. [ Time Frame: 5 years ]perform baseline sleep study, olfactory testing and clinical neurologic exam followed by periodically performed set of clinical parameters.
- functional MRI of the brain and eye tracking testing, identification of distinct features in PD [ Time Frame: beginning of study and at 2 years ]Perform fMRI at baseline and at 2 years followed by periodically performed set of clinical parameters.
- identify key fluid-based PD-associated molecular markers that identify disease state or progression [ Time Frame: 5 years ]parameters within blood may be present & measurable well before motor symptoms of PD are seen.
