BIDMC Researchers ID the Brain's Claustrum as Likely Origin of Parkinsonism's Tremors, Rigidty and Slowed Movement
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Parkinsonism – slowed movement, muscle rigidity and tremor – is a classic set of neurological symptoms most often seen in patients with Parkinson’s disease. Because neuron loss in the substantia nigra – a region of the brain associated with motor planning – is the hallmark characteristic of Parkinson’s disease, parkinsonism has long been thought to originate there. However, parkinsonism can occur in patients who have other conditions that leave the substantia nigra intact, making the true source of the suite of symptoms a mystery.
