Background: Cognitive impairment is one of the most common and important non-motor aspects of Parkinson's disease and greatly affects the function and quality of life of patients. But the key question is, do the theory of mind and decision-making process differ in Parkinson's patients and normal people? Aims: To compare the theory of mind and decision making process in Parkinson's disease and normal subjects. Method: This was a causal-comparative study. The statistical population included all Parkinson's patients referring to Tabriz health centers. Forty patients with Parkinson's disease and 40 normal individuals were selected by purposive sampling. Research tools include the eye-reading test (Baron-Cohen, 1995) and the Iowa Gambling Test (Bachara, Damasio & Anderson, 1994). Data analysis was performed using two-way variance. Results: There was a significant difference between Parkinson's disease and normal subjects in Iowa gambling and mind reading (p<0/01). Conclusions: Theory of mind and decision making in Parkinson's patients is lower than normal.
