    Presented by: Laura Marsh, MD

    Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology, Baylor College of Medicine
    Director, Mental Health Care Line
    Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center

    Parkinson's disease (PD) is complicated by a number of comorbid psychiatric symptoms that often overlap with the motor and other physical aspects of PD or may be caused by PD medications used to treat motor symptoms (e.g., impulse control disorders and dopamine agonists). In this webinar, Dr. Marsh will focus on the overlap of motor, cognitive, and psychiatric aspects of PD. Additionally, she will describe the features of comorbid psychiatric disturbances, including depression, anxiety and psychosis along with general approaches to treatment.
