Pauline Dodet, MD


Visiting Scholar


I am a French neurologist specialized in sleep medicine and movement disorders and I work in the sleep unit at Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris. I am spending 18 months with the Mignot Lab to develop my field of research in sleep. During my master of Neuroscience, I worked on the impact of dreaming on breathing and heart rate in REM sleep using the model of lucid dreaming for the first time. This experience introduced me to the sleep discipline which led me to specialize in this field. I am currently in the first year of PhD in neuroscience on the theme around sleep in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease. The goal is to find predictive biomarkers in sleep impacting the clinical trajectory of patients with Parkinson's disease. More recently, I am also interested in the clinical profile of patients with Parkinson’s disease carrying a protective HLA subtype for this disease.
