Building Brains to Fight Parkinson’s

Can you imagine forgetting your fondest memories? Forgetting the ones that are closest to you? It is a dreadful and heart-breaking feeling, for it’s our past that molds our future. As the memories fade, so does our known life. This is the ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. Parkinson’s disease results from the death of dopamine-generating cells in the substantia nigra, a region of the mid-brain. The affect of the disease is traumatic and the cause of it is still unknown. At the early stages of Parkinson’s disease the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking. The most fear aspects come in the advance stages when cognitive and behavioral problems may arise, including dementia.

Since much is not known about the true nature and development of brain cells, it is hard to study, treat and cure Parkinson’s. Right now there is no known cure, only medication to delay the traumatic effects that it has. But with clinical laboratories making tremendous leaps forward, we are getting that much closer to understanding Parkinson’s as well as finding different measures to counter this debilitation disease.
