A test that uses images of cats and dogs may prove to be a quick and effective method of predicting which patients in early stages of Parkinson's disease will develop dementia.
Natural killer cells may play a critical role in regulating and restraining neuroinflammation and protein clumping associated with Parkinson's disease.
The Parkinson's-associated protein alpha-synuclein appears to act as a "toggle switch" that helps control vesicle transportation and gene expression. In a diseased state, this delicate balance is broken. The findings have implications for the development of new treatments for Parkinson's disease.
A protein associated with Parkinson's disease regulates neurotransmission by self association, a new study reports.
Researchers report EEG technology has the ability to study activity of areas deep inside the brain, such as the thalamus and nucleus accumbens. The findings will help shed new light on disorders that affect these brain regions, such as Parkinson's disease and OCD.
