Information on Parkinson's disease. Learn about Parkinson's disease treatments, symptoms, new research and medication.
  1. Researchers pinpoint how brain activity changes in mouse models of Parkinson's disease, hinting at what may drive symptoms in humans.
  2. For most of human history Parkinson's disease (PD) has been a rare disorder. However, demography and the by-products of industrialization a now contributing to an impending a Parkinson's pandemic, according to experts.
  3. Researchers have unlocked a key process in all human cells that contributes to diseases like cancer and neurodegenerative diseases as well as aging. The discovery reveals how cells efficiently get rid of cellular junk, which when it accumulates, can trigger death and the health problems associated with getting older.
  4. A team of scientists have discovered that astrocytes are linked to the buildup of a toxic protein that is one the hallmarks of Parkinson's disease. The work suggests an important role for glial cells in Parkinson's disease and offers potential new targets for developing therapies.
  5. Researchers have identified a new role for PARL, a protein that has been linked to Parkinson's disease. They report that mice lacking PARL display specific problems in the nervous system reminiscent of Leigh syndrome instead.
  6. Research into the root cause of Parkinson's aims to advance work on a disease-modifying treatment.
  7. Loss of the protein Parkin causes certain forms of Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative condition involving death of neurons. Scientists have now shown that Parkin stifles cell death by blocking BAK, a protein which is a central player in cell death. Understanding the interactions between Parkin and BAK may lead to new therapeutic approaches to slow the progression of Parkinson's disease.
  8. Scientists have found a compound in coffee that may team up with caffeine to fight Parkinson's disease and Lewy body dementia -- two progressive and currently incurable diseases associated with brain degeneration.
  9. Combining low doses of a toxic herbicide with sugar-binding proteins called lectins may trigger Parkinsonism -- symptoms typical of Parkinson's disease like body tremors and slowing of body motions -- after the toxin travels from the stomach to the brain.
  10. One type of anticipatory timing relies on memories from past experiences. The other on rhythm. Both are critical to our ability to navigate and enjoy the world, and scientists have found they are handled in two different parts of the brain.
