New survey available on "Autonomic Symptoms in Parkinson's Disease"


The objective of this study is to increase the knowledge about autonomic symptoms in PD and its relationship to emotional well-being and quality of life.

The autonomic nervous system is a control system for the body that involves a number of functions such as cardiovascular functions, blood pressure, digestion, urination, sexual arousal, and swallowing. Autonomic symptoms can have a significant impact on general functioning and health-related quality of life for individuals with PD.
