Although there is a long-standing, common assumption that most -- if not all -- dopamine neurons solely respond to rewards or reward-predicting cues, researchers instead discovered that one genetic ...

A group of nerve cells in the brain has the remarkable ability to completely stop all forms of movement, a new mouse study shows. The discovery provides valuable insight into how the nervous system ...

A new discovery paves the way for clinical trials that use patients' own cells to treat Parkinson's ...

Scientists have uncovered a new mechanism by which mutations in a gene parkin contribute to familial forms of Parkinson's disease. The discovery opens a new avenue for Parkinson's ...

Researchers have demonstrated that a transplant surgical procedure (called 'needle trauma') triggers a profound immune response and causes the death of most grafted dopamine neurons. They ...

Researchers have solved a long-standing mystery about how a protein helps rid the body of damaged mitochondria, in findings that could help lead to potential new treatments for Parkinson's ...

Through a novel pairing of epidemiology and toxicity screening, researchers were able to identify 10 pesticides that were directly toxic to key ...

Two years of heavy exposure to TCE, a liquid chemical that lingers in the air, water and soil, may increase the risk of Parkinson's disease by ...

Dopamine, a brain chemical long associated with pleasure, motivation and reward-seeking, also appears to play an important role in why exercise and other physical efforts feel 'easy' to ...

Researchers have found a new way to remove waste from the brain after ...

The words that researchers use to describe their results can be harnessed to discover potential new treatments for Parkinson's disease, according to a new study. The study employed an artificial ...

Researchers have identified gut bacteria that are associated with dementia with Lewy bodies. Changing the levels of three bacteria, Collinsella, Ruminococcus, and Bifidobacterium, may delay the onset ...

Researchers attempted to identify early symptoms of Parkinson's disease using voice data. In their study, the researchers used artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze and assess speech signals, ...

Researchers have found that a set of proteins have different shapes in the spinal fluid of healthy individuals and Parkinson's patients. These could be used in the future as a new type of ...

A team has developed a new tool that can predict how Parkinson's disease patients will fare over the course of a year based on their genetics, brain scans and physical ...

Researchers have discovered that the neurotransmitter adenosine effectively acts as a brake to dopamine, another well-known neurotransmitter involved in motor control. The discovery could immediately ...

Parkinson's disease affects 3% of population over 65 years old, and the average age of onset is 60. Regarding juvenile Parkinson, which represents the rest of all Parkison's cases, the ...

A new treatment for neurological and psychiatric diseases, that works by reducing the excitability of overactive brain cells, has been ...

Researchers have found that COVID-19 activates the same inflammatory response in the brain as Parkinson's disease. The discovery identified a potential future risk for neurodegenerative ...

People who gain or lose weight soon after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease may be more likely to have changes in their thinking skills than people who maintain their weight, according to ...
