Watch out for bad dreams...

A study from one of the top universities found that people who experience bad dreams as frequently as every week, are more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease. This finding is supported by data collected from various patients. This could assist scientists understand risk factors and disease experience, but more research is required to understand the risk and its reasoning. This suggests that distressing dreams may be a prodromal symptom of PD. However, its important to understand that Parkinson’s is a rare condition and not everyone with bad dreams develop the disease.

COVID 19 and Parkinson’s

Patients with COVID-19 frequently describe neurological symptoms like brain fog, headaches, and insomnia. A recent study found that the coronavirus can make mice brains more vulnerable to a toxin that results in the death of nerve cells seen in Parkinson's disease. Yet, expert opinion suggests that Parkinson’s is a rare condition and mostly affects only 2% of population above 55 years; so, its not necessarily a cause of panic.

Acupuncture could be a way to go..

Acupuncture has shown to regulate symptoms of PD via brain’s neural activity and functional connectivity in mice. Since human response is similar to mice, it may help us too. It showed improvement in motor skills, functional brain network etc.

Treating the cognitive symptoms

Highly effective brain scanners offer hope for treating cognitive symptoms in Parkinson’s disease. These could help identify patients with PD and similar conditions most likely to benefit from new treatments for previously untreatable symptoms.

Robot to detect PD..

Within the next five years, a new Parkinson's disease detection robot may be used on humans. Researchers from a top university have created the first ever AI based system to detect PD.
