Noradrenergic Mechanisms in Parkinson's Disease examines fundamental and clinical evidence explaining the progression of the disease. Featuring contributions from acknowledged international experts in the field, this book defines ideopathic Parkinson's disease and covers such topics as the alterations in Parkinson's disease, norepinephrine-dopamine interactions, noradrenergic control of striatal dopamine release, glial cells as targets of the central noradrenergic systems, and a theory regarding noradrenergic mechanisms in Parkinson's disease. New directions for research on Parkinson's disease are also explored.
