In brief: Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the brain where the production of Dopamine by specialized nerve cells is impaired.
This results in significant motor function impairment (tremors, rigidity, slowing if movements and gait or balance difficulties). Other areas may, to a lesser degree, be involved as well (mood, cognitive, autonomic nervous system).
