Relationship between Pupillary Function, Olfaction, Balance, and Cognition in People with Parkinsons Disease and Essential Tremor
The purpose of the study is to use simple tools that could be used in a health clinic to identify people with Parkinson's disease and essential tremor. People with these health issues are at risk of falling or having dementia. We want to explore the relationship between the pupillary light reflex (the way the pupil constricts when exposed to light) and olfaction (smell) with balance and cognition in people with Parkinson's disease and essential tremor.
