Parkinson's Disease: Cause of Symptoms

Find out why Parkinson's disease affects both the physical and the mental.

Parkinson's disease is much more than just a physical symptom, it also affects the psyche.

Why is this?

Quite simply, because Parkinson's disease leads to the destruction of the substantia nigra in the brain.

The substantia nigra is an essential area of the brain responsible for the production and release of dopamine.

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that acts as a crucial chemical messenger in our brain. It plays a fundamental role at both psychic and motor levels.

At the psychological level, dopamine regulates our emotions, motivation and even pleasure. It is also involved in the coordination of movement and the perception of space. In short, it is indispensable to our mental and physical well-being.

Parkinson's disease is characterized by a progressive reduction of dopamine in the brain. This leads to motor disorders such as muscle stiffness, tremors and slowness of movement. But beyond the visible symptoms, this dopamine depletion can also affect mood, motivation and cognition.
