Abstract

We developed a questionnaire to assess motor imagery (MI) of gait and administered it to 33 controls and 28 individuals with PD. Our goals were: 1) compare gait MI in individuals with and without PD, 2) determine whether walking performance relates to gait MI and 3) compare gait MI in individuals with PD with and without freezing of gait. Gait MI was not different between PD and controls. There was no correlation between walking performance and gait MI, and no difference in gait MI between freezers and nonfreezers. The gait imagery questionnaire may be useful for imaging studies involving imagined gait.
