Abstract

Besides the motor dysfunction, which is a well-known feature of Parkinson's disease (PD), nonmotor features affecting cognition, behavior, and mood are commonly present in PD and troublesome for both patients and caregivers. The neuropsychological assessment forms an important component of the evaluation of these nonmotor features, thereby providing screening or diagnostic tests for clinical care or research, and subsequently, longitudinal assessments of cognitive and behavioral change.
