Excess lipids in nerve cells may trigger Parkinson’s disease

ISLAMABAD, October 26 (online): Researchers have discovered an imbalance in the amounts of fatty molecules called lipids inside the brain cells of people with Parkinson’s disease. A buildup of lipids in nerve cells may cause inflammation.
Parkinson’s disease is a movement disorder that gets progressively worse over time.
The death of dopamine-producing nerve cells in the substantianigra region of the brain causes the illness. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays several vital roles, including regulating motivation, reward, and movement.
However, the exact train of events leading to the death of dopamine-producing cells remains unclear.
