- Diagnosis of early-stage Parkinson's disease now possible with new method, researchers reporton July 15, 2022 at 7:10 pm
Cellular changes in Parkinson's could be revealed by adapting a related technique, known as quantitative MRI (qMRI). A new method enabled researchers to look at microstructures within the part of the deep brain known as the striatum -- an organ which is known to deteriorate during the progress of Parkinson's disease. With a novel method of analysis, biological changes in the cellar tissue of the striatum were clearly revealed and the team was able to demonstrate that these changes were associated with the early stages of Parkinson's and patients' movement dysfunction.
- New chemical biological tools to monitor Parkinson's diseaseon July 13, 2022 at 7:28 pm
Researchers are a step closer to understanding how Parkinson's disease develops and progresses thanks to chemical biological tools.
- Parkinson's disease: Copper leads to protein aggregation, study findson July 7, 2022 at 6:19 pm
Copper exposure in the environment and the protein alpha-synuclein in the human brain could play an important role in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease. Researchers were able to show how the protein takes on an unusual shape when exposed to large amounts of copper ions. The findings could help develop new strategies for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
- Three distinct brain circuits in the thalamus contribute to Parkinson's symptomson June 8, 2022 at 3:25 pm
Neuroscientists identified three circuits in the thalamus that influence the development of motor and nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson's disease. And by manipulating these circuits, they could reverse Parkinson's symptoms in mice.
- Bad dreams could be early warning of Parkinson's diseaseon June 7, 2022 at 11:44 pm
Older adults who start to experience bad dreams or nightmares could be exhibiting the earliest signs of Parkinson's disease, say researchers.
