Compensatory mechanisms in Parkinson's disease: Circuits adaptations and role in disease modification.


The motor features of Parkinson's disease (PD) are well known to manifest only when striatal dopaminergic deficit reaches 60-70%. Thus, PD has a long pre-symptomatic and pre-motor evolution during which compensatory mechanisms take place to delay the clinical onset of disabling manifestations. Classic compensatory mechanisms have been attributed to changes… (More)
