Neurological Study // 2016 Vision In Parkinson's

We use changes in visual function to understand how Parkinson’s develops

Patients with Parkinson’s that develop visuo-perceptual problems are at highest risk of dementia. We are carrying out a large-scale longitudinal neuroimaging study to test with visual dysfunction is associated with changes in grey matter atrophy in people with Parkinson’s disease and whether these differences in visual performance may have underlying genetic determinants.
