The interval of line tracing performance is more associated to basal ganglia function due to the dependence on bradykinesia and rigidity. The other component of this task, the precision of execution of complex movement sequences, is more related to attention. We compared the motor response after once dosing of 200 mg retarded release LD (levodopa)/CD(More)
A matter of debate is the impact of levodopa (LD) application in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) on altered force development and coordination, which are also influenced by the strength of muscles used. The objectives were to compare the motor response, the development of grip strength, and the pharmacokinetic behavior of LD and its main peripheral(More)
