Older adults needed for study

The call is out for older adults to help with a study that aims to benefit those with Parkinson's disease.

Lori Sacrey, a PhD student studying at the University of Lethbridge's Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience (CCBN), is looking at how music affects movement. She is looking for older adults, aged 65-80, to participate in a study that examines the effects of music on movement.

The overall aim of the study is to determine the effect of music on a reaching movement in individuals diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Older adults are needed to serve as a healthy, non-Parkinson's control group.

The total time commitment to participate in this study is 20 minutes.
