Post research on association of LBD with post traumatic stress?
My dad has had terrible waking dreams since his return from the European theater during WW II. Has any research been done on sleep disorders and post traumatic stress which may lead to this dementia?

Thanks!

There's a lot of evidence that RBD (REM sleep behavior disorder) *plus* cognitive impairment is a precursor to Lewy Body Dementia. Much of the research from the last few years has been posted here.

I'm not aware of any research into PTSD and PD or LBD.

thanks, Robin. I think my dad's had a sleep disorder for eons. Just curious because so many vets suffer from that as part of their PTSD.
