In the past five years significant progress has been made in our basic and clinical under­ standing of Parkinson's disease. The discovery that MPTP, a relatively simple molecule, is able to induce parkinsonism in otherwise healthy adult humans, and the recent interest in the possibility of "transplantation" procedures as a therapeutic modality in the treatment of Parkin­ son's disease have generated enormous interest in research related to Parkinson's disease. In this setting, the National Parkinson Foundation decided to organize a research meeting to bring together scientists actively engaged in research relevant to the study of Parkinson's disease, to accelerate its progress and to promote an exchange of ideas. This meeting took place in Janu­ ary 1988 at Key Biscayne, Florida. It was decided to publish the proceedings ofthis meeting to allow rapid documentation of the participants current findings and views regarding this rapidly of this volume follows the organization of the meeting and begins evolving field. The structure with a clinical and neuropathological review of current knowledge regarding Parkinson's dis­ ease. Since dopaminergic neurons playa major role in the pathophysiology of the disease, many of the contributions relate to some aspects of dopaminergic function including localiza­ tion, regulation, and pharmacology of dopamine receptors. A special effort has been made to provide a summary of the present knowledge of the cellular biology of the dopaminergic neurons

Bringing this trusted guide up to date, three expert neurologists describe new understandings gained by five years of additional research on Parkinson's disease. They give a new focus to the importance of exercise, share new information about imaging techniques such as SPECT Scan and DATScan that are aiding in the diagnosis, and detail new findings about the genetics of the disease and promising uses of new technologies such as tablet devices for people who have trouble communicating. The authors also provide information about impulse control disorders caused by some drugs used to address the symptoms of the disease, as well as a complete update on treatments such as medications, surgery, and more
