Understand Parkinson’s disease
As one of the most prevalent neurodegenerative diseases, most people at least know of one person who has Parkinson’s disease. We will consider how the normal principles of how neurones work and communicate are altered in the Parkinsonian brain, and why this leads to the symptoms that we see. We can then apply this knowledge to thinking about how current therapies for Parkinson’s disease work. Finally, we can think about where the holes in our knowledge are and the importance of this for improving our ability to alleviate the symptoms of the disease.
