Moving Fast and Slow

One of the hallmarks of Parkinson's disease is paradoxical kinesia, which is the ability to move quickly in response to certain stimuli when one was unable to move before. In this project, we will examine how paradoxical kinesia can be exploited to improve quality of life for patient's with PD, incorporating different sensory stimuli and examining current clinical practice.
