Neurobiology of Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disease whose clinical symptoms are mainly caused by the loss of substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons. The main problem for both researchers and clinical practitioners is that when patients present the first symptoms, somewhere between 70% and 80% of their dopaminergic neurons have disappeared.

Our group focuses on the study of the functional anatomy of the basal ganglia and on the search for neuroprotective strategies.
