One of the problems with this task is that it is motor intensive and, given the motor difficulties which characterize Parkinson's disease (e.g., tremor, impaired facility of movement, rigidity, and loss of postural reflexes), allows the possibility that patients with PD are capable of sequence learning but are… CONTINUE READING
