How Does Parkinson’s Disease Affect the Brain?


Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disease where, over time, dopamine in the brain is lost, leading to problems with controlling movement. In this simple animated video from Soton Brain Hub, learn more about the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease and how it affects the brain.

The film explains the different parts of the brain involved in the development of the disease including the direct and indirect pathways and how this affect patients and leads to decreased motor output and some of the classic symptoms of Parkinson’s disease such as slowed movement, tremors, and rigidity. The simple diagrams illustrate excitatory and inhibitory pathways in the brain which control movement in patients with the condition.
