Abstract

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease and is responsible for significant morbidity and costs. Non-motor manifestations of PD can be as disabling as the classic motor symptoms. Moreover, medications used to treat PD motor symptoms may have variable effects on these non-motor domains.
