In this session of APDA’s Dr. Gilbert Hosts, special guest Dr. Jasdeep Hundal shared his expertise on cognitive rehabilitation and answered audience questions live.
Changes in cognition can unfortunately be a common non-motor symptom of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is an early stage of cognitive difficulty that does not interfere with a person’s ability to perform activities independently but can nevertheless affect a person’s performance of more complex cognitive tasks.
