Research Summary

I'm interested in cerebrovascular disease, critical care illnesses and obstructive sleep apnea, epilepsy, narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea, parasomnias, persistent sleepiness in OSA patients successfully treated with CPAP, restless legs syndrome, sleep, EEG patterns associated with rhythmic movement disorders of sleep, the association of obstructive sleep apnea in Downs syndrome, and the EEG patterns in the auxiliary symptoms of narcolepsy.
