I am examining associations between cerebrovascular function and cognitive performance in people with Parkinson’s disease. Previous research has indicated that non-motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease including cognitive impairment can have a greater impact on quality of life than the more commonly known motor symptoms. I am interested in learning about mechanisms that lead to cognitive impairment and dementia in Parkinson’s disease.
