Scientists Unravel Molecular Mechanisms of Parkinson’s Disease

Detailed brain cell analysis has helped researchers uncover new mechanisms thought to underlie Parkinson’s disease. 

The study, published in Nature Communications, adds to our growing understanding of the causes of Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, and could influence drug design in the future. The work was carried out by a team of scientists, including Dr Mathew Horrocks.
