Details and patient eligibility

About

Voltage fluctuation as a result of brain activity will be recorded into the computer using an EEG device.

Full description

Patients with Parkinson's disease may have gait disturbances including freezing of gait. Visual and auditory stimuli may improve gait. Investigators will analyze brain wave during walking while giving the subject different stimuli. The voltage fluctuation (in hundreds of microvolts) will be recorded using the EEG cap and amplifier into a computer.
