Abstract

To investigate whether preprogramming (Bereitschaftspotential, BP) and control activity (skilled performance positivity, SPP) in a complex task are sensitive to L-dopa, movement related potentials (MRPs) were recorded in 12 non-demented Parkinson's disease (PD) patients before and after acute L-dopa administration, and in 17 control subjects. After L-dopa administration, the PD patients scored a significantly higher percentage of correct performances (p
