Abstract

An abnormality in auditory evoked responses localised to the inferior colliculus (IC) has been reported in rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behaviour disorder (RBD) patients. The external cortex of the inferior colliculus (ICX) has been demonstrated not only to be involved in auditory processing, but also to participate in the modulation of motor activity.
