... neurodegenerative disease Parkinson’s disease PD (Parkinson's disease) is characterized by some typical motor signs and symptoms (hypokinesia, bradykinesia, resting tremor, rigidity) that are caused by striatal dopamine depletion and improved by dopamine replacement therapy. The most effective dopaminergic...

...K.J. Krishnan; A.K. Reeve; D.M. Turnbull A decline in mitochondrial function has long been shown to exist in neurodegenerative disease. Whether this decline is a secondary consequence of other factors or whether it causes the eventual death of a cell is unknown. In this review, we will discuss some...
