How Parkinson’s Disease Can Change One’s Life

How Parkinson's Disease Can Change One's Life Tagged with:

 

Parkinson’s Disease is a neuro-degenerative disease that affects one’s motor skills at first, but can eventually lead to other mental issues as well as a side affect of this disease. Parkinson’s Disease is caused by the lack of dopamine produced by the neurons in the substantia negra section of the brain. Dopamine is a chemical responsible for relaying messages between the substantia negra section of the brain to others in order to regulate movements and other motor skills needed on a daily basis. Over time, an individual with Parkinson’s Diseases looses the ability to make smooth, coordinated movements because many of the neurons that produce dopamine are damaged, and not enough dopamine is produced by the substantia negra for normal body movements to occur.
