BACKGROUND: Although dyskinesias-reduced-self-awareness (DRSA) in Parkinson's disease (PD) is related to deficit in metacognition, other factors, such as "Theory of Mind" (ToM), could operate. METHODS: Forty-one PD patients were assessed using the Global Awareness of Movement Disorders (GAM) and the Dyskinesias Subtracted-Index (DS-I). To study whether GAM and DS-I scores could be influenced by second-type ToM or Reading the Mind in the Eyes (RME) tasks, we conducted two multiple logistic regression analyses...

AIM: To assess functional rearrangement following neurodegeneration in the thalamus and dentate nucleus in patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal syndrome (CBS). METHODS: We recruited 19 patients with PSP, 11 with CBS and 14 healthy subjects. All the subjects underwent resting-state (rs) fMRI using a 3T system. Whole brain functional connectivity of the thalamus and dentate nucleus were calculated by means of a seed-based approach with FEAT script in FSL toolbox...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate white matter and cortical changes in patients with parkinsonisms and healthy controls (HC), applying both hypothesis-free and regions of interest (ROI)-based advanced brain MR analyses. METHODS: Twenty-five patients with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy - Richardson's Syndrome (PSP-RS), nine with cerebellar and nine with parkinsonian Multiple System Atrophy variants (MSA-C and MSA-P), forty-seven with Parkinson's Disease (PD) and twenty-seven HC underwent a 1...

BACKGROUND: Gait impairment in Parkinson's disease reduces mobility and increases fall risk, particularly during cognitive multi-tasking. Studies suggest that bilateral subthalamic deep brain stimulation, a common surgical therapy, degrades motor performance under cognitive dual-task conditions, compared to unilateral stimulation. OBJECTIVE: To measure the impact of bilateral versus unilateral subthalamic deep brain stimulation on walking kinematics with and without cognitive dual-tasking...

INTRODUCTION: Supranuclear gaze palsy (SGP) is a classic clinical feature of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) but is not specific for this diagnosis and has been reported to occur in several other neurodegenerative parkinsonian conditions. Our objective was to evaluate the association between SGP and autopsy-proven diagnoses in a large population of patients with parkinsonism referred to a tertiary movement disorders clinic. METHODS: We reviewed clinical and autopsy data maintained in an electronic medical record from all patients seen in the Movement Disorders Clinic at Washington University, St...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease with prominent motor and non-motor symptoms. Gastrointestinal (GI) dysfunction is among the most common and bothersome of non-motor symptoms that physicians will encounter while caring for their patients. Patients are subject to a wide variety of GI symptoms involving organs from the oropharynx to the anorectum. Our awareness and understanding of GI involvement in PD continues to evolve. In this review, we use a gastroenterologist's perspective to provide practical considerations for the diagnosis and symptom-based management of GI dysfunction seen in PD...

INTRODUCTION: Parkinson's disease (PD) is associated with neuropathological changes in olfactory and gastrointestinal tissues, and PD patients frequently suffer from hyposmia, hyposalivation, and dysphagia. Since hyposmia and gastrointestinal dysfunction are frequently premotor symptoms, it has been speculated that an external, for example microbial, agent could trigger the pathologic process in the corresponding organs, subsequently spreading to the central nervous system. We recently showed evidence for compositional differences between the fecal microbiota of PD patients and control subjects...

INTRODUCTION: Parkinsonian-Pyramidal syndrome (PPS), defined as the combination of both pyramidal and parkinsonian signs is a concept that recently emerged. PPS may manifest itself in numerous neurodegenerative diseases, many of these being inherited. Their diagnosis is a major challenge for the clinical management, for the prognosis, for genetic counselling and, in a few cases, which should not be neglected, for specific treatment. OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to provide a review of PPS and an algorithm in order to guide their diagnosis in clinical practice...

Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) often compensate for their motor deficits by guiding their movements visually. A wide range of ocular and visual disorders threatens the patients' ability to benefit optimally from visual feedback. These disorders are common in patients with PD, yet they have received little attention in both research and clinical practice, leading to unnecessary - but possibly treatable - disability. Based on a literature search covering 50 years, we review the range of ocular and visual disorders in patients with PD, and classify these according to anatomical structures of the visual pathway...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to investigate the prevalence and severity of nonmotor symptoms (NMSs) and to identify factors affecting NMSs and the health-related quality of life of Japanese patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). METHODS: A total of 1021 patients with PD who had one or more NMS and showed wearing-off under anti-parkinsonian treatment were enrolled from 35 medical centers in Japan for this observational study. The primary measurements were the Movement Disorder Society unified Parkinson's disease rating scale (MDS-UPDRS) part I and the Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-8)...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) are often confronted with difficult medical decisions, which might be hampered by cognitive impairment or chronic stress. Little is known, however, about the capacity to make medical decisions and the influence of cognition and stress on this ability. This study determined whether non-demented Parkinson's disease patients are able to make medical decisions and whether this capacity is influenced by cognition and stress. METHODS: Forty-six Parkinson's disease patients and 94 healthy controls were assessed with the MacArthur Competence Assessment Tool for Treatment during which participants were presented with deep brain stimulation as a treatment option for a fictional Parkinson's disease patient...
