Neuropsychological deficits of varying levels are observed in all sleep disorders. These deficits include sustained attention, emotional processing, and some aspects of executive functioning and are relatively well characterized in insomnia and excessive daytime sleepiness. Neuropsychological assessment allows for the evaluation of the extent and severity of cognitive dysfunction present for individuals with sleep disorders. Additionally, these assessments provide additional tools to track treatment efficacy over time.
