OBJECTIVE Our study aimed to determine whether the short latency afferent inhibition (SAI) response could be associated with the severity of olfactory dysfunction in PD patients. METHODS A total of 71 PD patients and 20 controls were enrolled. All PD patients were classified into 3 groups by the severity of the olfactory deficit. Single-pulse… CONTINUE READING
