Nice job.

Hi Jennifer,

You should chat with Nathan Glassy, he had the MEG poster on movement initiation in PD. His findings are restricted to cortex but there are some similarities.

This is an interesting study. I’m particularly interested in the decreased activity you observed in the anterior cingulate cortex and insula. Those areas play a role in decision making, attention processing, working memory, and error processing. So it makes sense that the PD group had problems with cognitive switching.

Your study is also interesting because you found increased activity in frontal regions suggesting that executive functions may be increased to make up for impaired information processing in the insula and ACC.

Do you have any followup studies planned? Any interest in looking at differences in functional connectivity between salience and executive control networks?
