However, treatments are available to help reduce symptoms and maintain quality of life for as long as possible.
  1. A new study describes how low levels of herbicide mixed with a common dietary compound can transport toxic proteins to the brain, causing Parkinsonism.
  2. Researchers studying the connection between lipids and toxic protein levels have uncovered a new potential therapeutic target for Parkinson's disease.
  3. Using modern imaging techniques, a neurologist specializing in mapping the human brain has just discovered a previously unknown brain region.
  4. The brain can react appropriately to differently situations partly because it can anticipate results based on cues it receives. But how does this happen?
  5. In Parkinson's disease, toxic protein clumps accumulate in the brain's motor region. A study shows how targeting an enzyme could prevent this.
  6. Researchers establish that a cellular pathway that protects the brain against damage is disrupted in Parkinson's disease. Two enzymes play key roles.
  7. Singing therapy could have real-life benefits for people with Parkinson's disease. A recent pilot study adds to an ever-growing weight of evidence.
  8. New research reveals what gives coffee its protective properties for brain health, and why it can help keep Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease at bay.
  9. Although Parkinson's is considered a neurological condition, a new study concludes that individuals who have had their appendix removed have a lower risk.
  10. In a new study, researchers have managed to stop Parkinson's disease in mice by attacking a key component of harmful brain inflammation.
