Abstract in Portuguese
Recentemente, estudos indicam que, juntamente com os sintomas motores clássicos, possam ocorrer déficits de função executiva, cognição e linguagem na Doença de Parkinson (DP). Este estudo objetivou avaliar a recepção de sentenças e relacionar seus suportes de atenção e memória, em pacientes não-demenciados com DP. Participaram do estudo 80 sujeitos, sendo 40 do grupo controle e 40 com diagnóstico de DP, subdivididos em 2 grupos de acordo com a gravidade da doença. Foram aplicados os seguintes testes: Token Test, Extensão de dígitos, Fluência Verbal, Mini Exame do Estado Mental e Escala de Depressão Geriátrica. O presente estudo indica a existência de déficit de compreensão sintática na DP, principalmente nos estágios mais avançados da doença. As sentenças em que ocorrem tais déficits são analisadas e as bases de atenção e memória necessárias à compreensão de sentenças são discutidas.

The following tests were applied: Token Test, Digit Span, Verbal Fluency, Mini-Mental State Examination and the Geriatric Depression Scale.
