Brief Summary:

The beneficial effects of rhythmical auditory stimulation (RAS) on spatio-temporal gait characteristics in Parkinson's disease (PD) are attested by clinical research.

Nonetheless, it is still unclear which auditory information parameters (i.e. complexity, temporal regularity or adaptability to gait) maximize the effectiveness of RAS.

Objectives: To evaluate the beneficial effects of RAS on spatio-temporal gait characteristics in PD patients with gait disorders according to:

  • RAS complexity (i.e. metronome, amplitude modulated noise, music)
  • RAS variability (i.e fixed, random, semi-random)
  • RAS adapted in real-time to gait

Variability study:

To study the impact of RAS variability (i.e fixed, random, semi-random) in 20 PD patients and 20 healthy controls on spatio-temporal gait characteristics with metronome, amplitude noise and music.

Adaptability studyTo study the impact of RAS adaptability (i.e fixed, random, adapted in real-time to gait) in 20 PD patients and 20 healthy controls on spatio-temporal gait characteristics with metronome, amplitude noise and music.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Patient
Patient with Parkinson's Disease with walking test and neuropsychological evaluation
Behavioral: Neuropsychological evaluation
The subjects are submitted in one hearing stimulus while they realize a walking test

Experimental: Contrôle
normal control with walking test and neuropsychological evaluation
Behavioral: Neuropsychological evaluation
The subjects are submitted in one hearing stimulus while they realize a walking test




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. gait velocity [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    evaluation of walking speed between the different conditions


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. spatio-temporal gait characteristics [ Time Frame: 2 days ]
    evaluation of other walking parameters between the different conditions
