About this book

Cortico-subcortical dynamics in Parkinson’s disease aims to integrate key pathophysiological aspects underlying Parkinson’s disease. The volume offers a broad spectrum of opinions on how chronic dopamine depletion affects cortico-subcortical dynamics, especially how disruptions of the non-dopaminergic systems resulting from chronic dopaminergic degeneration could lead to the functional alterations observed in parkinsonism.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book nicely combines up-to-date basic science information with clinical data on one of the most prevalent movement disorders worldwide - Parkinson’s disease (PD). … Written for specialists in Parkinson’s disease, the book is appropriate for movement disorder neurologists, neurosurgeons involved in the surgical management of Parkinson’s, and basic scientists interested in the anatomy, physiology, and neurochemistry of Parkinson’s. … It is most useful as a reference for basic scientists as well as clinical researchers." (Virgilio Gerald H. Evidente, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2009)
