My doctoral research topic is biological and behavioural markers in people with Parkinson’s disease. Firstly, I am examining blood and cerebrospinal fluid for specific proteins (namely anthocyanins, C-type natriuretic peptide and alpha-synuclein). Secondly, I am recording the coordination of hand and eye movements whilst participants perform both lab-based and more natural tasks.
