Abstract

Lower urinary tract (LUT) dysfunction presents early in multiple system atrophy (MSA), usually initially as urinary urgency, frequency and incontinence, and voiding difficulties/urinary retention becomes apparent over time. We have observed a subset of patients who instead presented ini...read more

Striatonigral Degeneration

Striatonigral degeneration is a neurological disorder resulting from a disrupted connection between the striatum and substantia nigra, which enable balance and movement. Here is the latest research.

Synucleinopathies

Synucleinopathies are neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein aggregates in neurons and glial cells. Discover the latest research on synucleinopathies here.

Alpha-Synuclein Aggregation

Alpha-synucleins are small proteins that are believed to restrict the mobility of synpatic vesicles and inhibit neurotransmitter release. Aggregation of these proteins have been linked to several types of neurodegenerative diseases including dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson's disease. Here is the latest research on α-synuclein aggregation.

Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are a group of nervous system disorders that increase or decrease voluntary or involuntary movements. Here is the latest research on genetic and environmental factors, as well as mechanisms that underlie movement disorders.

Multiple System Atrophy

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder which affects the body’s autonomic functions, including breathing and muscle control. Discover the latest research on MSA here.

Olivopontocerebellar Atrophy

Olivopontocerebellar atrophy (OPCA) refers to neurodegeneration of the inferior olivary nucleus, pons, and the cerebellum, and is characterized by cerebellar ataxia and other neurological problems. Here is the latest research.
