How Dying Cells Are Replaced In Parkinson'S Disease
Grant number: 1022839 | Funding period: 2012 - 2014
Death of a particular type of cell in the brain causes the movement symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) (e.g. tremor). This study investigates how these cells are normally replaced, and whether stimulating their replacement can alleviate movement symptoms in an animal model of PD. Fulfillment of these aims will deliver vital information about how we might delay and better treat the movement symptoms of PD.
