Thesis Working Title: MRI-derived neural pathways and EEG-derived functional connectivity as markers of cognition in Parkinson's disease.


Nicky's thesis will search for validated biomarkers to predict cognitive decline in Parkinson's disease by investigating the integrity of cholinergic brain pathways, that normally provide a pivotal modulation for healthy cortical function.
