We read this article, “Altered emotional recognition and expression in patients with Parkinson’s disease” by Jin et al1 with great interest and appreciate the novel information provided on altered emotional processing in pre-deep brain stimulation (DBS) Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients and we would like to add our feedback on the role of DBS on nonmotor and emotional components of PD.
