Genetics, Neurology, Behavior, and Diet in Parkinson's Disease: The Neuroscience of Parkinson’s Disease, Volume 2 provides a single source of material covering different scientific domains of neuropathology underlying this condition. The book covers a wide range of subjects and unravels the complex relationships between genetics, molecular biology, pharmaceutical chemistry, neurobiology, imaging, assessments, and treatment regimens. It fills a much-needed gap as a "one-stop" synopsis of everything to do with the neurology and neuroscience related to Parkinson’s disease—from chemicals and cells to individuals. It is an invaluable resource for neuroscientists, neurologists, and anyone in the field.

Key Features

  • Offers the most comprehensive coverage of a broad range of topics related to Parkinson's disease
  • Serves as a foundational collection for neuroscientists and neurologists on the biology of disease and brain dysfunction
  • Contains in each chapter an abstract, key facts, mini dictionary of terms, and summary points to aid in understanding
  • Features preclinical and clinical studies to help researchers map out key areas for research and further clinical recommendations
  • Serves as a "one-stop" source for everything you need to know about Parkinson’s disease


Neuroscientists/neurologists, psychologists, health scientists, public health workers, research scientists, pharmacologists, and physicians. Graduate/postgraduate students, lecturers, and professors
