Volume five of the sequence "Advances in examine on Neurodegeneration" is worried with topics that are at present the focal point of in depth study, and during which advances in our figuring out of the pathological mechanisms un­ derlying neurodegenerative ailments are anticipated within the close to destiny. the 1st part includes 5 stories dedicated to many of the neuroimaging technolo­ gies. The dialogue is anxious with the query of no matter if neuroimaging thoughts give the opportunity to stick to the method of degeneration because it happens, and which tools provide the necessary sensitivity and quantifiability for this goal. despite the fact that, the query has to be tested of even if, given the actual and chemical barriers of those suggestions, even less than optimum stipulations, anatomical answer might be superior to the level that neuro­ degenerative illnesses might be clinically determined just before at the moment attainable and a convinced analysis made. the probabilities of utilizing neuroimaging concepts to supply information about the results of neuroprotective or neuroregen­ erative healing suggestions, and for correlating the result of neuropsycho­ logical study with imaging information also are mentioned. the second one part is anxious with the importance of endogenous or exogenous neurotoxins as triggers for neurodegenerative techniques which may bring about Parkinsonism. Vulnerability elements, which come with such elements as nerve finishing sensitivity, the synergistic results of substances and some of the mechanisms underlying varied pollutants are discussed.

Example text

Several years after onset of clinical signs, will provide the basis for possible neuroprotective therapeutic strategies (see below). It also explains why exogenous levodopa is so effective particularly in the early stages of PD: enough dopaminergic striatal nerve terminals are left (with very low endogenous dopamine production) to take up the exogenous levodopa and decarboxylate it into dopamine. Dopaminergic nerve terminals are very efficient in taking up extracellular dopa or dopamine, to keep it contained and use it locally where it is needed for signal modulation.

1992) also showed that demented PD patients, according to the DSM-III-R criteria, had significantly lower HMP AO uptake in the frontal and basal ganglia regions than the nondemented PD patients. On the other hand, Jagust et ai. (1992) showed very elegantly that in PD patients who performed most poorly on neuropsychological testing (but were not diagnosed as demented) showed lowest rCBF ratios in left and right temporal lobes. Frontal hypoperfusion was more linked to the presence of depression and poor performance on frontal lobe testing.

It is assumed here that this is due to slow reduction of dopaminergic nerve terminals in the striatum during disease development. In PD the post-synaptic dopaminergic receptor system is intact (no loss of striatal projection neuron-s) further guaranteeing that complete or partial replenishing of striatal nerve terminals with dopamine restores impaired neurotransmisson. In the light of above argumentation it will be necessary to determine how exacly the time course of striatal nerve terminal loss in PD is.
