Introduction

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a neurogenic disorder associated primarily with bodily dysfunctions such as bradykinesia, awkward gait, and postural instability, and, more recently, with several psychological or neurological states. Major Depressive Disorder commonly presents as a comorbidity with PD, and cognitive dysfunctions, particularly in cortical areas pertaining to executive functions such as judgement and planning, are also frequent, and in need of further research. Fortunately, recent scientific investigations into these and other detrimental effects of PD have resulted in several discoveries that could set the foundations for novel treatments to increase quality of life for individuals afflicted by this progressive, incurable, degenerative illness.
