Sleep in people with Alzheimer's
It is well known that present people with Alzheimer's suffer from sleep disorders. This is especially clear for family members and caregivers who care for them. However, very little has been studied about why these disorders appear and how they can be treated. Today we suspect that it is an alteration in their biological clock (the central pacemaker in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus). Our research consists in the study of circadian rhythms in people with Alzheimer's in order to give treatment guidelines which can improve their sleep.
