  1. parkinson's syndrome

    Parkinson's syndrome, also known as Parkinson's disease, is a neurodegenerative disorder that primarily affects dopamine-producing neurons in the brain, specifically in a region called the substantia nigra. Symptoms generally develop slowly over years, and may include tremors, bradykinesia (slowness of movement), limb rigidity, balance problems, and gait disorders. Non-motor symptoms such as sleep disturbances, mood disorders, cognitive changes, and autonomic dysfunction may also occur. The exact cause of Parkinson's syndrome is unknown, but is thought to involve both genetic and environmental factors. Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson's syndrome, but there are medications and therapies available to manage its symptoms.
