Objective: Electroencephalographic (EEG) changes in patients with NREM parasomnias (NRP) occur in sleep architecture as changes in slow wave sleep or cyclic pattern, which are not considered abnormal. However, abnormalities in EEG in these patients have recently been reported, indicating that EEG patterns in NRPs are not definitive. Moreover, most of the polysomnography (PSG) findings in NRP patients were reported in the adult population requiring data from pediatric population to avoid bias in conclusion.
