Question: “How gray matter volume in the brainchanges in young adults with narcolepsy”Hypothesis: Narcoleptic patients have structuralabnormalities in the hypothalamus, which may verywell have to do with the clinical manifestation ofnarcolepsy with cataplexyThe Study:•17 Adults, ave. age 26.6, diagnosed with narcolepsy•17 Adults, same age without narcolepsy•Voxel based morphometry performedPrimary Results: Narcoleptic patients had decreasedvolumes of gray matter in various parts in the brain.They did not have any areas of increased volume thanthe comparison group.

  • 9. Question: “Does a disruption in hypocretinneurotransmission cause human narcolepsy?”Hypothesis: A disruption in hypocretinneurotransmission causes human narcolepsy.The Study:•9 diagnosed narcoleptics, aged 48.6 (5 men, 4 women)•8 non-narcoleptics, aged 40.3 (3 men, 4 women)•Immunoreactive hypocretin measured in cerebrospinalfluid.Primary Results: Hypocretin neurotransmission isdeficient in some people with narcolepsy, suggestingthe deficiency does contribute.
