Stepping in place (SIP) is a useful locomotor training intervention. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of single auditory-cued SIP training on cortical excitability, rhythmic movements and walking ability in patients with Parkinson's disease(PD).

Gait impairment is a highly disabling symptom for Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. Rhythmic auditory stimulation (RAS), has shown to improve spatio-temporal gait parameters in PD, but only a few stu...
When searching for an object in a familiar environment, we may automatically orient to locations where this object was often placed previously. Contextual cueing refers to the guidance of attention by...
It is well known that the timing of brief static sounds can alter different aspects of visual motion perception. For instance, previous studies have shown that time intervals demarcated by brief sound...
Purpose We investigated whether rhythm discrimination is mainly driven by the native language of the listener or by the fundamental design of the human auditory system and universal cognitive mechanis...
Medical therapies applied to Parkinson's disease (PD) have advanced tremendously since the 1960's based on advances in our understanding of the underlying neurophysiology. Behavioral therapies, such a...
Patients with Parkinson's disease have internal rhythm dysfunction, which may affect the rhythmic movements such as walking. Poor regularity of the rhythmic movement may lead to freezing o...
In this study, 51 subjects include 17 freezers,17 non-freezers and 17 aged-matched healthy subjects will be recruited. We will compare the cortical excitability, gait performance, and step...
To determine the clinical efficacy of auditory cueing using a cross over design to investigate whether increasing auditory cueing frequency by 20% above self paced cadence affects gait par...
Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients suffer from gait impairments responsible for falls and bad quality of life: reduced speed and stride length, randomness in stride duration variability (re...
A rhythmic auditory stimulation intervention may be beneficial in order to improve movement parameters after stroke. Reviews argue that more randomized controlled trials with a control gro...
Electrical waves in the CEREBRAL CORTEX generated by BRAIN STEM structures in response to auditory click stimuli. These are found to be abnormal in many patients with CEREBELLOPONTINE ANGLE lesions, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, or other DEMYELINATING DISEASES.
An auditory brainstem structure in the pontine tegmentum that contains several nuclei associated with auditory localization and is component of ascending and descending auditory pathways.
Disorders of hearing or auditory perception due to pathological processes of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. These include CENTRAL HEARING LOSS and AUDITORY PERCEPTUAL DISORDERS.
Acquired or developmental cognitive disorders of AUDITORY PERCEPTION characterized by a reduced ability to perceive information contained in auditory stimuli despite intact auditory pathways. Affected individuals have difficulty with speech perception, sound localization, and comprehending the meaning of inflections of speech.
Loss of sensitivity to sounds as a result of auditory stimulation, manifesting as a temporary shift in auditory threshold. The temporary threshold shift, TTS, is expressed in decibels.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition, affecting one person in every 500, 95% of which are over 40. It is caused by degeneration of more than 70% of the substantia nigra, which depletes the dopamine (the neurotransmitter involved in pro...
