Narcolepsy is a life long disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy and symptoms of abnormal Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. The cause of the disease is an autoimmune attack against the hypocretin producing cells in the brain. Our research is focused on understanding this process and preventing it from occurring. We also are seeking new treatment methods.
