Pause for Parkinson’s!

Parkinson’s Disease is a disease of the central nervous system that causes damage to nerve cells that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine. As dopamine is responsible for smooth muscle movement, tremor and shaking of the hands are one of the first signs of Parkinson’s. The muscle weakness may then spread to the rest of the body progressively. While Parkinson’s has significant physical impacts, it can also take a heavy emotional toll.

With the ageing population in Australia, it is now more important than ever to recognise what remains an incurable disease and conduct the research that will reverse that fact.
