BACKGROUND Many investigators have observed mild cognitive deficits in essential tremor (ET), yet the functional significance of these deficits is unclear. Also, there are very few data in which functional activity in ET has been divided into cognitively based activities (remembering appointments) versus motor-based activities (writing cheques). OBJECTIVE The authors (1) compared functional level in ET cases versus controls, assessing functional activities that are cognitively based and those… CONTINUE READING
