New publication in Annals of Neurology

Associate Professor at CFIN, Sarang S. Dalal is senior author on a new publication on: "Bicycling suppresses abnormal beta synchrony in the Parkinsonian basal ganglia"

Freezing of gait is a poorly understood symptom of Parkinson disease, and can severely disrupt the locomotion of affected patients. However, bicycling ability remains surprisingly unaffected in most patients suffering from freezing, suggesting functional differences in the motor network. The purpose of this study was to characterize and contrast the oscillatory dynamics underlying bicycling and walking in the basal ganglia.
