      Mike Studer’s webisode is awesome. His discussion of attention and distractions could be expanded to an entire presentation. Attention facilitates conscious control and, more importantly, learning. Parkinson’s does not prevent Hebbian plasticity unless the person is in automatic (habitual) mode. Difficult? YES! but possible.

        Thanks for your comment, Richard. Mike’s is a phenomenal physical therapist who continues to show people with Parkinson’s the importance of exercise. It is essential to challenge your mind and body in order to build strength, flexibility, and balance. As Mike stated, by stretching every day and pushing yourself in your exercises, you will begin to notice a remarkable difference with symptoms like fatigue and cognitive ability.
