Action Observation and acoustic cue improve Bradykinesia of Finger Movements in Parkinson Disease (PD)

Dr. Pelosin et al from the Department of Neurosciences (DINOGMI) – University of Genoa, Italy and writing in Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, 03/01/2013 looks at the influence of action observation training on Bradykinesia of Finger Movements in Parkinson Disease (PD) patients. His group found that both action observation – watching finger tapping at a spontaneous rate of 3 taps per second and an acoustic cue, at the same rate, improved the spontaneous rate of finger tapping and therefore reduced bradykinesia with action observation showing a better effect.
