Mind Games

If you’re a researcher researching brain function, it’s a no-brainer to study people with Parkinson’s. After all, we are neurodegenerative goldmines. And if you’re a person with Parkinson’s, it’s a no-brainer to participate in this research. So I do. Happily. Willingly.

My only complaint is that these researchers reach for the same questionnaires every time.
“Do you know what day of the week it is today? What month? What year?
Now count back by seven, beginning with 100.
I’m going to give you a minute to tell me as many words as you can, starting with the letter ‘b.”

Blah. Banal. Bothersome. Babble. Bleak. Bellyache. Bemoan. Blunder. Bomb. Brood. Backfire. Barrier. Barren. Bungle. Botch. Boring.
