About the Research
Parkinson’s disease can cause impairments in thinking and memory, but the timing and severity of this is highly variable. Emerging data suggests that visual dysfunction could be an early risk marker for impairments in thinking and memory.
The Vision in Parkinson’s Group at UCL, led by Dr Rimona Weil, aims to provide insight into how Parkinson’s disease can affect thinking and memory, with the ultimate goal of developing treatments to slow their progression. You can also read more on the Dementia Research Centre’s website.
