We examined seven right-handed, asymmetrical (right side affected) Parkinson's disease patients and seven age-matched controls in a manual finger sequencing test using left and right hands in vision, no vision, and motor imagery conditions.

They also displayed motor imagery asymmetry, mentally simulating movement more slowly with their right affected hand than with their left hand. Additionally, impairment in mental hand rotation… CONTINUE READING
