Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

We assessed the effects of forming multiple intentions, task switching, and encoding strategies during intention formation on PM performance in PD. We found that PD participants were preferentially impaired in forming multiple intentions at once and that encoding strategies were particularly effective for addressing this deficit. These findings identify a novel PM deficit in PD and support clinical use of encoding strategies.
