[1] The UPDRS is designed to monitor disability and impairment due to Parkinson's disease. It comprises several parts. Part I evaluates "Mentation, Behavior, and Mood" (with a maximum of 16 points; more points are worse); Part II evaluates "Activities of Daily Living" (with a maximum of 52 points); Part III entails a "Motor Examination" (with a maximum of 108 points). Total score of Parts I-III sums the points from all parts and thus can range from a minimum of 0 (best) to a maximum of 176 (worst).
[2] The MoCA assesses short term and working memory, visual-spatial abilities, executive function, attention, concentration, language and orientation. The total score ranges from 0 to 30 (highest function).
[3] GDS-S is a short 15 'yes/no' question instrument for assessing depression in older adults. Questions are answered by the research participant (i.e., self-rater). Scores range range from 0 to 15 and higher scores represent greater depression. Scores of 5-9 and >9 have been correlated with mild and moderate-severe depression, respectively.
