Dr Sayer wanted to give L-dopa to these patients because of Lucy – she was his patient. He observed that she is able to catch her glasses when she drops them and later he showed to other doctors that all of these patients are able to catch a ball if thrown at them – it showed that they still have reflexes. Later he discovered that Leonard can comunicate with him with ouija board (with letters) and wanted to know if giving them this medicine will help. They also have problems with moving – it was similiar to Parkinson’s disease.
