People with Parkinson’s disease (PD) without dementia often have cognitive deficits that impact daily function. This study explored functional cognition and its neural substrates in PD without dementia. We found dissociable relationships between aspects of daily cognitive function and functional connectivity of cognitive brain networks. This information may ultimately guide OT practice that will improve or maintain functional cognition in those with PD.
