The gait initiation process is of particular interest in Parkinson's disease because it combines motor and cognitive components of movement preparation (referred to as anticipatory postural adjustments) and movement execution (the step by itself). Moreover, gait initiation in Parkinson's disease is often affected by motor blocks (a subtype of the "freezing of gait" phenomenon). Gait initiation disturbances in Parkinson's disease include delayed release of anticipatory postural adjustments… CONTINUE READING
