|jws-mds.20517.mpg||14011K||Segment 1. Infrared images of the patient recorded in sleep stage 2, at 3:53 AM. She has elaborated and complex movements suggestive of packing, hanging the laundry on a string, shaking something, sewing, and then writing on a board. Although there is no audio recording, she is continuously speaking during the behaviors (note the movements of the jaws). The movements are jerky and involve exclusively the upper part of the body. Segment 2. Sleep stages 1 and 2, 9:47 PM. The patient seems to argue with somebody, speaking and scolding sharply. Segment 3. Sleep stages 1 and 2, 10:18 PM. After what seems to be an argument with an invisible subject, the patient moved her legs (as if she were running within the bed) then tried to stand up, all while she is still sleeping. She became quiet as soon as the nurses came in the room and awoke her, with clear wake-associated alpha electroencephalogram rhythm. She was evasive about her dream contents when awakened here. This video presentation has been abbreviated. The full version will appear on theMovementDisorders DVD Supplement, which is issued bi-annually.|
