Brief Summary:

Parkinson's disease is characterized in the advanced phases by an altered response to dopaminergic therapy for the occurrence of abnormal movements called dyskinesias, that worsens the quality of life of the patient and exposes him to comorbidities. Several data show a reduction in the amount of slow wave sleep that correlates inversely with disease duration. Since this stage of sleep is linked to mechanisms of deletion of superfluous information the investigators hypothesize that the onset of dyskinesias is related to such alteration of sleep.

-This study is aimed to investigate, by means of high-density electroencephalography (hd-EEG), the sleep and in particular the slow wave in order to clarify the relations with the development of dyskinesias.
