The CamPaIGN study of Parkinson's disease: 10-year outlook in an incident population-based cohort
- Medicine, PsychologyJournal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry
Background Prognosis in Parkinson's disease (PD) remains poorly understood due to a lack of unbiased data on the natural history of treated PD. The CamPaIGN study has been the first to prospectively…

- Psychology, BiologyActa neurologica Scandinavica
Presence of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) as a predictor for Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD) has been discussed from a clinical perspective, but long‐term follow‐ups of the PD‐MCI guidelines for the prediction of PDD have been sparse.

DBS of the STN and, to a lesser degree, globus pallidus interna (GPi) has consistently been associated with decreased verbal fluency, but significant global cognitive decline is usually not observed in patients who undergo rigorous selection.
Exercise training increases size of hippocampus and improves memory
- Biology, PsychologyProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
It is shown that aerobic exercise training increases the size of the anterior hippocampus, leading to improvements in spatial memory, and that increased hippocampal volume is associated with greater serum levels of BDNF, a mediator of neurogenesis in the dentate gyrus.
Is there a dysexecutive syndrome?
- Psychology, BiologyPhilosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
It is proposed that there are discrete categories of functions within the frontal lobes, of which ‘executive’ functioning is one, and within the executive category, the data do not support the concept of an undifferentiated central executive/supervisory system.
