Parkinson's disease is an age-related degenerative brain condition in which parts of the brain deteriorate. It is best known for causing slowed movements, tremors, balance issues, and other symptoms. The majority of cases occur for unknown reasons, but some are inherited. Although the condition is incurable, there are numerous treatment options available.
Symptoms usually begin gradually and worsen over time. As the disease progresses, people may have difficulty walking and talking.
The most noticeable signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease appear when nerve cells in the basal ganglia, a region of the brain that controls movement, become impaired or die. Normally, these nerve cells, or neurons, produce dopamine, a key brain chemical. When neurons die or become impaired, they produce less dopamine, resulting in the disease's movement problems.
