Parkinson's Disease

Tie inIn previous chapters throughout the year we have learned and talked about the nervous system. Parkinson's disease affects the central nervous system.

Symptoms~slow movement~stiffness~involuntary movements~stooped posture~shaky hands

This disease mostly affects people above the age of 40.

Parkinson's is a chronic and progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects your movement.

Sadly, there is no cure. There are treatments available to help treat the disorder. Certain medications help control the symptoms and physical excersize is a lifestyle change that can help.

Damage of the nerve cells in the brain cause dopamine levels to drop which then leads to the symptoms shown.

Famous people w/ the disease: Michael J. Fox, Muhammad Ali, and Robin Williams.
