Parkinson's disease

What is Parkinson's? Parkinson's disease is a disease of the brain, closer to the central nervous system. It mainly occurs in old age. The symptoms are based on a premature, gradual loss of certain nerve cells in the brain, which leads to a lack of important messenger substances, especially dopamine. These degenerative processes mainly take place in brain areas that affect movement control, but also affect mood, sleep and thinking, etc.
