In brief: Several.

Parkinson's is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system.
The motor symptoms of parkinson's disease result from the death of dopamine-generating cells in the substantia nigra. Early in the course of the disease, the symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, cognition, demenentia and depression occur.
