Abstract
Changes in neurological state of 12 patients with parkinsonism receiving levodopa are assessed both by neurological examination and by measuring the output of work with an automated ergometer. With both evaluations four symptomatically stable patients show from one week to the next both absence of significant differences and presence of significant homogeneity. In eight patients who differ in symptomatic stability, changes in neurological scores are correlated with changes in the output of work. The method is therefore proposed as an adjunct to neurological examination, for documenting changes in neurological state occurring spontaneously or as a consequence of treating parkinsonism.
