Alpha-synuclein and Cognition in PD
Next-generation sequence analysis of alpha-synuclein (SNCA) in Parkinson disease will test whether genetic variability is associated with motor, cognitive and neuropsychiatric disturbances, and whether it may influence susceptibility and/or decline.
Latest Research NewsA recent GEOPD study led by Dr. Demetrius Maraganore included over 20 centers and 6,000 patients and was recently published in Movement Disorders — the first ever to examine the association of alpha-synuclein variations with survival in Parkinson’s disease.
