Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common movement disorder characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra pars compacta. Accumulating evidence indicates that the interactions between genetic and environmental factors cause PD. Although several monogenic mutations linked to rare familial PD have been identified, other genetic determinants causative for sporadic PD, ...

Here it will be suggested that impulsivity, which predicts the vulnerability to develop addiction to stimulant drugs as well as compulsive behaviours as observed in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and early onset Parkinson’s Disease, also stems ...
