CEREBRART - the Black Hole of Parkinson's Disease

This CEREBRART artwork is created for those who have fallen into this black hole - Parkinson's disease which belongs to a group of conditions called movement disorders. Parkinson's disease occurs when cerebral cells in an area of the brain known as the substantia nigra or black substance die ("melting") which results in abnormal signaling patterns within the brain that cause impaired movement. People with Parkinson's disease often develop a so-called parkinsonian gait that includes a tendency to lean forward and problems with initiating movement. Or they may stop suddenly as they walk. People with Parkinson's disease can benefit from being proactive and finding out as much as possible about mechanisms of Parkinson's disease in order to alleviate fear of an unknown spiral around a black hole. I believe strongly that active research concerning mechanisms of Parkinson's disease will lead to new effective therapies in persons with Parkinson's disease. E.g. Ronald Postuma of McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and colleagues have found recently that persons with Parkinson's disease received caffeine showed a significant improvement in tests for motor problems.

  3. The 11th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease AD/PD 2013 will take place between March 6 – 10, 2013 in Florence, Italy.
    International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease is the world’s foremost platform devoted to promoting the latest advances in neurodegenerative disease research and new therapies.

  4. Please post new potentially effective therapies in persons with Parkinson's disease!

    1. at least some of the talented artists were attempting to tame their Parkinson’s Disease symptoms with their artistic actions - there are potentially effective therapies!.

  5. Parkinson art brain actions therapies are effective but even more effective brain therapies Parkinson disease involving protection of neurons in a very special region of the brain called the substantia nigra should be developed brain art is not enough IMHO

  6. It should be corrected that non-motor symptoms including depression, constipation etc, often dominate the clinical picture of advanced Parkinson's disease.

  8. A unifying explanation of Parkinson's disease development.Multiple genes have been found to be associated with Parkinson’s disease. Much evidence shows that unliganded iron is also associated with Parkinson’s disease. LINK
