This series will cover both preclinical and clinical science, providing a resource for all Parkinson’s disease researchers.

The preclinical section of the series covers the anatomical and biochemical changes associated with Parkinson’s disease as well as the genetic factors which can influence it.

The clinical section of the series covers methods for assessing the progression of Parkinson’s disease (including non-motor symptoms), treatment of patients and likely developments in the future.
