    Brain Training: Effects of Aerobic Exercise in Parkinson’s Disease

      This study examined the effects of exercise on cognitive and motor functioning in a group of newly diagnosed individuals with Parkinson’s. The overall goal of this study was to assess whether exercise had potential to slow Parkinson’s progression in individuals who had not yet been treated with anti-Parkinson’s medications. Participants

      Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation for Prevention of Falls in Parkinson’s Disease

        People with Parkinson’s can have trouble speaking clearly and audibly. Monotone, quiet speech is often a serious problem that impacts quality of life. This study at the Center for Biomedical Research in Music, Colorado State University examined the effectiveness of Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation (RAS), a gait training technique, in preventing falls

        CHOP PD: Charting the Progression of Disability in Parkinson Disease

          When this study was awarded, there appeared to be clinically meaningful benefits of short-term exercise programs on persons with Parkinson. However, claims regarding the long-term effects of exercise on disability were made without research support. Researchers examined the 2-year trajectory of disability in a group of people with Parkinson’s. By

          Treatment Implications for Parkinson’s Disease

            People with Parkinson’s can have trouble speaking clearly and audibly. Monotone, quiet speech is often a serious problem that impacts quality of life. This study focused on targeted sensorimotor training techniques that appear to improve functional and neural outcomes. As part of the study, the lab developed animal models of slow progressive
