    About the Lecture

    The lecture Anomalies of the Aging Brain: Parkinson's Disease by Georgina Cornwall, PhD is from the course Aging.


    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease initially manifest as difficulty with short-term memory and planning.
    2. Both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are progressive in onset.
    3. Both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are neurodegenerative pathologies.
    4. Both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are associated with an accumulation of abnormal proteins in neurons that block signalling pathways.
    5. Both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are believed to have some hereditary genetic link.
    1. The pathology starts in the sub-cortical region of the brain (the basal ganglia).
    2. The pathology starts in the cortical region of the brain (the temporal lobe).
    3. The disease presents with memory problems first, then movement disorder.
    4. The disease pathology is in the indirect movement pathway.
    5. The disease has not yet been associated with harsh environmental chemicals, such as pesticides and cleaning fluids.
    1. ...accumulate in the nigrostriatal pathway, interrupting excitatory dopaminergic neuronal signalling in the direct movement pathway.
    2. ...accumulate in the nigrostriatal pathway, interrupting inhibitory dopaminergic neuronal signalling in the direct movement pathway.
    3. ...accumulate in the nigrostriatal pathway, interrupting excitatory dopaminergic neuronal signalling the in the indirect movement pathway.
    4. ...accumulate in the nigrostriatal pathway, interrupting inhibitory dopaminergic neuronal signalling in the indirect movement pathway.
    5. ...do not play a role at all. Lewy bodies are alpha-synuclein protein clumps seen in Lewy Body dementia only.
    1. Dementia
    2. Bradykinesia
    3. Rigidity
    4. Difficulty initiating movement
    5. Difficulty with balance
    1. History of cardiovascular disease
    2. Heavy metal inhalation and harsh chemical exposure
    3. History of multiple concussions
    4. Male gender
    5. Genetics
