Qualitatively, a neuropsychological analysis of errors committed in the clock drawing test and the superimposed images test was performed.
Even though literature generally reports that early onset Parkinson´s disease population does not present significant cognitive decline, in this study alterations in concrete cognitive domains were found, which could constitute an important contributing factor to disability.

The faster the subjects performed an action the more likely they were to win money in appetitive blocks or to avoid a painful shock in aversive blocks. Despite its disabling impact, the precise cause of this symptom remains elusive. This inference is bolstered by our observation that neural activity in nucleus accumbens and ventromedial prefrontal cortex, measured during simultaneously acquired functional magnetic resonance imaging, represented learnt stimulus values during performance.
