Recent years have seen a tremendous increase in our knowledge on the role of sleep in health, wellbeing and cognition. But this knowledge has yet to penetrate clinical practice in the treatment and care of brain disorders. For example, sleep plays a crucial role in the qualitative and quantitative reorganisation of memory and learning, and is therefore highly relevant to neurological rehabilitation in e.g. stroke, traumatic brain injury or neurosurgery. For other neurological conditions, such as MS, an association between poor sleep and daytime fatigue has been repeatedly demonstrated. Despite this, sleep is not routinely assessed in these conditions.
We propose that a step change is needed in the way sleep is considered in the diagnosis, treatment and care provision for patients with disorders of the brain. This Research Topic aims to highlight the necessity to better understand sleep in neurological conditions by collating papers on current research, theoretical considerations, and clinical practice. Contributions from all disciplines relevant to this topic in general, and the care pathway in particular, as well as patient representation groups, are welcome.
