Parkinson’s disease (or evil) Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that occurs by loss of neurons characteristically in the substantia nigra and in other areas of the brain. The involvement of this structure causes the appearance of the most typical symptoms of the disease. It is an own disorder, in general, older people, characterized by bradykinesia (slow voluntary movements), acinesia (lack of movement), muscle stiffness and tremor. The disease was described and documented in 1817 (Essay on the Shaking Palsy) by the English physician Dr. James Parkinson; the associated biochemical changes were identified in the late 1960s. In the early 1960s, researchers have identified a fundamental brain flaw that is distinctive of the disease: loss of brain cells that produce a neurotransmitter crucial dopamine, among others, in brain circuits involved in the control of movement. This discovery led to scientists to find the first effective treatment of Parkinson’s disease and suggested ways to develop new and even more effective therapies.
