The spatiotemporal progression of dopamine depletion in Parkinson's disease (PD) provides a special model for assessing dopaminergic effects on neural systems with differential baseline dopamine levels. This study aims at reviewing cognitive effects of dopaminergic stimulation in PD. While considering dopaminergic drugs (levodopa or dopamine agonists), temporal intervals (acute or chronic) and cognitive domains, we found that empirical evidence was almost focused on acute effects of levodopa on… CONTINUE READING
