    Memorial Hospital of RI, Department of Medical Rehabilitation, Pawtucket, RI 02860, USA
    Arch Clin Neuropsychol 22:957-67. 2007
    ..These findings suggest that neuropsychological tests, which are multifactorial in nature and require visual perception and visual spatial judgments are the most useful screening measures for hazardous driving in PD patients...

    M M Amick
    Department of Medical Rehabilitation, Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island, 111 Brewster Street, Pawtucket, RI 02860, USA
    J Int Neuropsychol Soc 12:736-40. 2006
    ..By contrast, the RPD group showed poorer verbal than visual memory within group. These findings suggest that side of motor symptom onset is associated with asymmetrical memory dysfunction...

    M M Amick
    Department of Medical Rehabilitation, Memorial Hospital of RI, Pawtucket, RI 02860, USA
    J Neurol Sci 252:13-5. 2007

    Mov Disord 23:452-4. 2008
    ..These observations confirm that rhinorrhea is a common problem and raise the questions as to whether some olfactory impairment found in PD could be confounded by rhinorrhea and also whether rhinorrhea may be a premotor symptom...
