This volume provides a complete guide to advancements made in the understanding of Parkinsonâs disease and related neurodegenerative disorders. From information on early research conducted in the 1960âs, to modern clinical views of these diseases, this handbook will give clinicians and neuroscientists a state-of-the-art reference that presents critical appraisals on recent developments in the study of these disorders.
As the world population in developed countries ages, these observations are particularly relevant. Dramatic data on the genetic causes of dominant and recessive forms of hereditary Parkinsonâs disease are presented, as well as new knowledge on the differences in the intricate circuitry of basal ganglia in healthy individuals and those afflicted with Parkinsonâs.
Clinicians will find this to be a great platform on which to base ongoing investigative approaches and research.
