    Background and Objective: Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a progressive disease resulting from a reduction in the release of dopamine. This loss of dopamine can have an effect on non- speech movements, as well as various aspects of speech production. Dysarthria is a collective name for a group of...

    Alterations of speech rate and rhythm are well-known features in parkinsonian patients suffering from hypokinetic dysarthria and are thought to be induced by complex dysfunction of planning, preparing and executing of motor speech sequences. Since speech can be subdivided down to the level of...
