New modeling of brain’s circuitry may bring better understanding of Parkinson’s disease

Researchers from the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis have developed a mathematical model of the brain’s neural circuitry that may provide a better understanding of how and why information is not transmitted correctly in the brains of Parkinson’s disease patients. This knowledge may eventually help scientists and clinicians correct these misfires.… New modeling of brain’s circuitry may bring better understanding of Parkinson’s disease   



NIH-funded twin study finds occupational chemical exposure may be linked to Parkinson’s risk

A new research report contributes to the increasing evidence that repeated occupational exposure to certain chemical solvents raises the risk for Parkinson’s disease. Researchers analyzed the occupational histories of twins in which one of the pair developed the neurodegenerative disorder, and assessed that twin’s likelihood of exposure to six chemicals previously linked to Parkinson’s.… NIH-funded twin study finds occupational chemical exposure may be linked to Parkinson’s risk
