Part II ISQ Club - Sleep

20 posts in this topic

Part II ISQs on two topics will be posted twice a week. You are encouraged to post a reply in the thread, stating whether you think an ISQ is true or false and why (eg. a short explanation, with reference to the textbook you used). Please only deal with one ISQ in each post and include the question as the first line of your post. All ISQs are taken from previous posts by Forum members.

In a few days this ISQ Club thread will be moved to the Question Bank board. If you submit an answer, your status will be changed to 'Question Bank member' and you will be able to see the Question Bank board. Please allow up to 48 hours for this change to happen.

therefore is Narcolepsy characterised by sudden loss of muscle tone during excitement ?

True or false?

if cataplexy was not there does it mean that a person doen't have nacrolepsy?

I think it is false, since Nacrolepsy is characterised by malfunction of the sleep/wake regulating system and its most common manifestation is Excessive Daytime Sleepiness and sleep attacks
