David Plante, MD, PhD | UW Psychiatry Grand Rounds

Hypersomnolence and Psychiatric Disorders

Talk Description: Hypersomnolence is a common sleep problem in psychiatric disorders, but its identification, evaluation, and potential biological underpinnings are poorly understood. This presentation will overview our evolving understanding of hypersomnolence in psychiatric disorders and highlight future avenues of research likely to affect its nosology and management.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the role of hypersomnolence in the course of depressive illness.
  2. Compare methods used to quantify hypersomnolence and their relevance to psychiatric disorders.
  3. Discuss physiological factors associated with hypersomnolence in psychiatric disorders.
  4. Identify evaluative and management strategies for hypersomnolence in depression.
