Between non-motor symptoms of Parkinsons disease (PD), the anxiety represents an important prevalence in pacients with the disease. Though there is no knowledge of its real ethiology, it has been observed, clinically and empirically, some correspondence between anxiety symptoms and the tipical motor symptoms of PD. This research project aims to validate the simulation test of public speech in patients with PD. Also, there will be analyzed the correlations between the scale of evaluation (VAMS) applyed during the test, the motor symptoms evaluated by bradykinesia tests, and physiological measures (blood pressure and heart rate).
