Parkinson's disease (PD) is attributable primarily to depletion of dopamine in the basal ganglia, but the full effects of this depletion are unknown. It is well known that PD involves motor slowing, and although it is not easy to distinguish between the motor and cognitive components of behavior, clinical observations suggest that cognitive processing may also be compromised. However, it remains unclear whether such cognitive involvement exists, and if so, to what extent. Previous studies of… CONTINUE READING
