Our overall goal is to investigate ways which assist people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and related disorders. We are specifically looking at novel interventions/ treatments for PD, as well as examining the mechanisms of disease complications. Finally, we are examining compensatory mechanisms in PD, as they may provide novel targets for intervention. We are also looking across disciplines to other diseases that share some characteristics in PD. For example some of the cognitive difficulties in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are similar to that seen in PD. We are therefore seeing if any of the tools originally developed to assess cognition in MS are also useful in PD.
