Training based on rhythmic auditory stimulation (RAS) can improve gait in patients with idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (IPD). Patients typically walk faster and exhibit greater stride length after RAS. However, this effect is highly variable among patients, with some exhibiting little or no response to the intervention. These individual differences...

It is well established that auditory cueing improves gait in patients with Idiopathic Parkinson’s Disease (IPD). Disease-related reductions in speed and step length can be improved by providing rhythmical auditory cues via a metronome or music. However, effects on cognitive aspects of motor control have yet to be thoroughly investigated. If synchro...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that targets mainly dopaminergic neurons of the basal ganglia. PD is characterized by motor symptoms typically leading to dysfunctional gait. External rhythmic auditory cues have shown beneficial effects on gait kinematics in PD patients. These effects are likely to be mediated by a general-p...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The beneficial effect of auditory cueing on gait performance in Parkinson's disease (PD) has been widely documented. Nevertheless, little is known about the neural underpinnings of this effect and the consequences of auditory cueing beyond improved gait kinematics. The therapy relies on processing the temporal regularity in an auditory signal to wh...
