Parkinson's Disease Cohort
Individuals Diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease
Essential Tremor cohort
Individuals Diagnosed with Essential Tremor
Rapid Eye Movement Disorder Cohort
Individuals Diagnosed with Rapid-Eye Movement Behavior Disorder (RBD). Eligible individuals will have been diagnosed with RBD based on a sleep study prior to entering the study. This study does not pay for or support a sleep study.
Healthy Control group
Individuals are healthy, without a known neurologic disease.
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Cohort
Individuals diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).
Parkinsonism - Undifferentiated
Individuals with any form of Parkinsonism, not meeting any of the above cohorts.
- fMRI compared between cohorts [ Time Frame: one time at initial visit ]Studying resting brain activity between healthy adults, participants with Parkinson's and participants with REM Behavior Disorder.
