Parkinson’s Participants Needed for Stanford Study on Cognition and Movement

Parkinson’s Participants Needed for Stanford Study on Cognition and Movement

Stanford’s Department of Neurology is looking for people between the ages of 45 and 75 who have Parkinson’s disease to participate in an observational study to examine the effects of aging and disease progression on the brain.

The study requires 15 hours of participation over 3 days and involves a series of cognitive tasks, motor tests and an MRI scan. Participants must be diagnosed with PD for at least 2 years and able to walk unassisted. The findings from this study may help with the development of therapies to treat cognitive or motor dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease.
