about

While much currently remains unknown in the field of Parkinson's research, this book assembles all that is currently known about the pathophysiological changes underlying Parkinson's Disease (PD). It aims to integrate key aspects of current PD knowledge and research, specifically how disruptions of the non dopamine systems resulting from chronic dopaminergic degeneration could lead to the functional alterations observed in parkinsonism. The understanding of these mechanisms interactions and a proper analysis of the input-output transformations within the cortico-basal ganglia circuitry will contribute to the unveiling of important dynamic features of information processing in the PD brain.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book nicely combines up-to-date basic science information with clinical data on one of the most prevalent movement disorders worldwide - Parkinson's disease (PD). . Written for specialists in Parkinson's disease, the book is appropriate for movement disorder neurologists, neurosurgeons involved in the surgical management of Parkinson's, and basic scientists interested in the anatomy, physiology, and neurochemistry of Parkinson's. . It is most useful as a reference for basic scientists as well as clinical researchers." (Virgilio Gerald H. Evidente, Doody's Review Service, September, 2009)
