New Way To Treat Parkinson’s Disease – Part 2 of 2

Patients with stimulators averaged 3,8 perceptible driving errors, compared to 11,4 errors for patients without stimulators and 7,5 errors for healthy controls, according to the study, which was published online in the Dec 18, 2013 issue of the chronicle Neurology. Parkinson’s patients with stimulators made 11 driving errors when their stimulator was on, 13 errors when it was off and they took levodopa, and 14 errors when their stimulator was off and they did not take the medication. “Until now, we weren’t unshakable how deep brain stimulation would affect driving,” study author Dr Carsten Buhmann, of University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, in Germany, said in a log news release.
