sophisticated technique could be replicated at hospitals anywhere.  

2. Sleep Disordered Breathing and its Impact on Cognitive Performance and Quality of Life in Parkinson's Disease: Carlos Singer, MD, Miller School of Medicine, University of Miami.
Poor sleep affects the quality of life for people with PD, but there is also evidence that it may also contribute to decreased cognition. This study will evaluate the prevalence of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and test the effectiveness of a common SDB treatment in people with Parkinson's.  Sleep disturbance in PD has been highlighted as not only having a measurable impact on quality of life, but also contributing to trauma and injury associated with reduced vigilance due to fatigue.

3. Sleep and Learn with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) in Parkinson's Disease, M. Felice Ghilardi, MD, New York University Medical School.
Motor learning involves practicing a task followed by forming a habit—a short-cut in the brain to do a complex motion. This study will investigate this process and how it is affected by PD. Dr. Ghilardi will study motor learning in people with PD and then attempt to improve motor learning by stimulating neurons using TMS.  TMS therapy has been shown to activate neurons in the brain and can be targeted to those associated with motor learning. If this technique works, it could be applied to reinforce important motor tasks associated with falls prevention, for example.
