Journal Club #76: An Overview of Sleep Disorders in Rare Genetic Syndromes
Description: While we may or may not always encounter patients with rare genetic disorders, this doesn't mean we shouldn't have at least a cursory idea of what these conditions are and how sleep for these patients may be affected. The genetics of sleep itself, meanwhile, continues to grow as a subject matter in the literature, so it's not a bad idea to better understand these basics, too. This month, we'll take a look at a recent survey of the molecular genetics of human sleep (Zhang & Fu, 2020) for a basic foundation, then we'll become familiar with some rare genetic disorders before reviewing this month's Journal Club study by AGAR et al, which gives a sweeping view of the prevalence and profiles of sleep disorders among those living with these conditions.
