Thalamic volume and related visual recognition are associated with freezing of gait in non-demented patients with Parkinson's disease.

BACKGROUND The pathophysiology of freezing of gait (FOG) in non-demented Parkinson's disease (PD) patients remains poorly understood. Recent studies have suggested that neurochemical alterations in the cholinergic systems play a role in the development of FOG. Here, we evaluated the association between subcortical cholinergic structures and FOG in patients… CONTINUE READING
