  • *Characterization of speech, communication and cognition along with outcomes
    following intensive intervention in Parkinson’s disease*
    The doctoral project aims to study the treatment effects on speech, voice and
    communication following an intensive group intervention (HiCommunication) as
    well as transfer of treatment effects to everyday- life. It also aims to
    describe the relationship between speech- and voice function, cognitive
    status and results from structural and functional neuroimaging in people with
    PD. From obtained data possible differences in responsiveness to treatment
    are also investigated. Data is collected within a large randomised-controlled
    trial. Acoustic and perceptual analysis of speech recordings, ambulatory
    phonation monitoring and analysis of structural and functional neuroimaging
    data will be performed.
    The doctoral project is part of a collaboration between the /Department of
    Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC)/ and the /Department
    of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS)/ at KI and integrated in an
    ongoing larger study (BETA-PD) partially affiliated with /Stockholms
