Cortical thickness imaging predicts motor outcomes in people with Parkinson’s disease


  • Cortical thickness is linked to motor outcomes in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) undergoing deep brain stimulation (DBS), which can lead to potential imaging biomarkers for clinicians.

Why this matters

    Brain tissue thinning has been examined in people with moderate to severe PD, but not in PD affected individuals without dementia, which is the population that undergoes deep brain stimulation.
