  Purpose

The investigators tested whether prospective memory is impaired in individuals with Parkinson's Disease compared to controls using reliable and validated experimental measures. Also, the investigators assessed the impact of Parkinson's medication on prospective memory performance in PD to better estimate prospective memory function in PD patients' everyday (chronically treated) life.
