New Model Recreates Early Spread of Parkinson's Disease in the Brain
They’re two of the biggest mysteries in Parkinson’s disease research – where does the disease start? And how can it be sopped early in the process? Now, a new laboratory model of Parkinson’s is giving scientists an inside look at what happens in the brain years before motor symptoms appear. Specifically, it demonstrates how abnormal alpha-synuclein proteins, which are strongly associated with Parkinson’s, gradually spread fro an area of the brain implicated in the early stages of the disease to other regions of the brain ultimately damaged by the disease.
