This study enrolled age-match of 36 people with PD and 35 normal controls (NC) in resting-state functional MRI. Altered global signal synchronizations in PD were explored, and correlations between global synchronizations and clinical assessments (cognitive and movement functions) were investigated. Alterations of global synchronizations were observed in left postcentral gyrus (PostC), left supramarginal gyrus and right opercular-inferior frontal gyrus in people with PD. The correlation results imply postcentral gyrus and hippocampus as critical brain regions associated with both cognitive performances and movement functions in PD.
