Task-evoked pupillary response (TEPR), a neurophysiological measure of cognitive workload, is increasingly used to detect subtle cognitive impairments in non-demented individuals with Parkinson ’s disease (PD). However, the relationship between TEPR and task complexity in non-demented PD remains unclear. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between TEPR and task complexity in non-demented individuals with PD and healthy controls.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Olfactory disorder is an early manifestation of Parkinson's disease (PD), likely to be associated with abnormalities of the dopaminergic neurons in the olfactory bulb (OB); however, the causes of olfactory disorder in PD are not entirely clear. Some studies showed that melatonin (MT) and androgens (mainly testosterone, T) might participate in the pathogenesis of PD. The research aimed to investigate effects of MT or T deficiency on OB dopaminergic neurons in rats. METHODS: One hundred and twenty normal male Wistar rats were randomly divided into the control, sham operation pinealectomy (P...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Numerous studies have demonstrated that patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) have a higher prevalence of substantia nigra (SN) hyperechogenicity compared with controls. Our aim was to explore the neuroimaging characteristics of transcranial sonography (TCS) of patients with PD and those with PD with dementia (PDD). The correlation between the echogenicity of the SN and clinical symptoms in Chinese patients with PDD was also assessed. METHODS: The ratios of SN hyperechogenicity (SN+), maximum sizes of SN+, and widths of third ventricle (TV) were measured using TCS for all the recruited p...

This study examined the long‐term effects (from T0 to T2) and the maintenance of the changes (from T1 to T2). T1‐weighted, diffusion‐weighted, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) during both a resting‐state and a memory paradigm were acquired. Voxel‐based‐morphometry and tract‐based‐spatial‐statistics were used for grey and white matter analyses. A ROI‐to‐ROI approach was used for resting‐state functional connectivity (FC), and model‐based for brain activation during the memory paradigm. ResultsPD patients showed increased cognitive performance, decreased functional disability, increased ...

Test your medicine knowledge with the MKSAP challenge, in partnership with the American College of Physicians. A 68-year-old man is seen for follow-up evaluation of Parkinson disease, which was diagnosed 10 years ago. Although his symptoms initially were well controlled with medications, he has experienced increasing fluctuations in motor symptoms, specifically tremor at rest and slowness, within the past 3 years. Medications are carbidopa-levodopa, entacapone, and amantadine. He notes marked symptom improvement after taking these medications, but the benefit lasts only for 2 hours. Increased dosing of carbidopa-...
