Every time you tap along to the song, you’re helping us research Parkinson’s Disease. Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder for which there is no known cure.
We already know a lot about it. Like how rhythm and timing are important to people with Parkinson’s and moving to a steady beat can help sufferers walk and retain balance.
Now, we want to go further and understand the timing mechanisms in the brain - we hope with a better understanding of these, we’ll have a better understanding of some aspects of Parkinson’s Disease.
That’s where you come in. Every time you tap along, you’re helping us build up a mass of data around rhythm and timing which we can use to map out how the timing mechanisms in the brain work.
So keep tapping! And share this with your friends and family too. The more you tap, the closer we’ll get to finding the answer.
