The recognition of RBD has shed additional scientific light on the "bumps in the night"; expanded knowledge of states of being and state dissociation; opened up new areas of research on brain and mind dysfunction during sleep; expanded knowledge of various neurologic disorders, particularly narcolepsy and parkinsonism; and reaffirmed the vital link between basic research and clinical medicine. Moreover, the safe and effective treatment of RBD with clonazepam is especially gratifying.
