Cognition as a mediator for gait and balance impairments in GBA-related Parkinson’s disease

Cognition as a mediator for gait and balance impairments in GBA-related Parkinson’s disease
NPJ Parkinsons Dis. 2022 Jun 20;8(1):78. doi: 10.1038/s41531-022-00344-5.ABSTRACTThe extent to which the heterogeneity of gait and balance problems in PD may be explained by genetic variation is unknown. Variants in the glucocerebrosidase (GBA) gene are the strongest known genetic risk factor for PD and are associated with greater motor and cognitive severity. However, the impact of GBA variants on comprehensive ... read more
