DescriptionThere is a growing body of evidence detailing how phenotypic changes in sleep with increasing age are not only associated with declining functions, but how sleep disorders may also indicate underlying pathology, particularly neurodegenerative diseases. There is vast potential to utilise subjective and objective symptoms of sleep as insightful markers of age-related processes and neurological diseases. We will review the link between insomnia and age-related cognitive decline, as well as potential interventions to improve sleep in older adults.
