Central vs. Peripheral manifestations of muscular weakness in persons with Parkinson's
Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a central nervous system disease that affects muscular
strength. Although central in nature, some peripheral maladaptation is seen from disuse.
The purpose of this investigation is to discern the central vs. peripheral manifestation
of weakness and develop a protocol to monitor central vs. peripheral adaptations to
resistance exercise in persons with PD.
