Visual Test May Flag Risk for Parkinson's Dementia
An online visual test may identify patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) at highest risk for dementia, results of a new study suggest. The analysis showed that patients with PD did worse than controls on tests of specific aspects of visual processing related to object recognition, which could be a clue that cognition is affected.
