The objective of this research was to investigate the relationship between emotion recognition and lateralization of motor onset in Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients using electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. The subject pool consisted of twenty PD patients [ten with predominantly leftsided (LPD) and ten with predominantly rightsided

that LPD patients (inferred righthemisphere pathology) are impaired compared to RPD patients in emotional processing. We also found that PD related emotional processing deficits may be selective to the perception of negative emotions. Previous findings have suggested a hemispheric effect on emotion processing that could be related to emotional response impairment in a subgroup of PD patients. This study may help in clinical practice to uncover potential neurophysiologic abnormalities of emotional changes with respect to PD patient’s motor onset.
