Abstract
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder. First appreciable symptoms in PD are those related to an altered movement control. Current PD treatments temporally revert the symptoms, but they do not prevent disease’s progression. At the beginning of the treatment, the antiparkinsonian effect of the medication is very evident and symptoms may completely disappear for hours; however, as disease progresses, motor fluctuations appear. Collecting precise informati...
