Although Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a degenerative disease that primarily affects movement, it is also known to severely impact a number of cognitive processes, such as learning, memory, language, or emotion, especially as the underlying dopaminergic pathways become progressively dysfunctional. This project entails a multipart study investigating the structural and functional changes in PD patients during a multitude of cognitive tasks. In collaboration with David Copland (UQCCR), Christina Knuepffer (APCN).
