Sleep is a complex brain state with fundamental relevance for cognitive functions, synaptic plasticity, brain resilience, and autonomic balance. Sleep pathologies may interfere with cerebral circuit organization, leading to negative consequences and favoring the development of neurologic disorders. Conversely, the latter can interfere with sleep functions. Accordingly, assessment of sleep quality is always recommended in the diagnosis of patients with neurologic disorders and during neurorehabilitation programs. This review investigates the complex interplay between sleep and brain pathologies, focusing on diseases in which the association with sleep disturbances is commonly overlooked and whereby major benefits may derive from their proper management.
