Parkinson’s is a serious disease that affects the way how you move parts of your body. The disease is due to problems with certain nerve cells in the brain. These nerve cells are usually producing the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is important for the transmission of the information of how muscles should react and therefore how parts of the body should move. It is still unknown what exactly is causing Prakinson’s.
