In this study, we performed various behavioral tests (apomorphine-induced rotation, cylinder, forepaw adjustment steps (FAS), beam walking, rota-rod, and open-field), using 6-hydroxydopamine (OHDA) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced hemi-PD model rats with various striatal DA levels, to find the best way to predict the DA level from earlier disease stages. Different from the 6-OHDA-induced model, reduction in the striatal DA levels in the LPS-model was less significant. Among the behavioral tests, data from cylinder and FAS tests, which evaluate forelimb movements, best correlated with decline of the DA level. They also ...

Conclusions: Differently from HC, cVEMPs are altered in PD. Severity of cVEMPs alterations increases from PD without PS to PDPS, suggesting an involvement of vestibulospinal pathway in the pathophysiology of PS. Our results provide evidence for a significant impairment of cVEMPs in PDPS patients and encourage further studies to test validity of cVEMPs as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of PD progression.

Authors: Dragašević-Mišković N, Petrović I, Stanković I, Kostić VS Abstract INTRODUCTION: Levodopa-induced dyskinesias (LID) appears in more than 50% of Parkinson's disease patients after 5 years of treatment and clinicians always have to ensure that there is a balance between the beneficial effect of the treatment and the potential complications. Areas covered: In this review, the authors discuss the treatment of LID. Treatment can be divided into strategies for preventing their occurrence, modification of dopaminergic therapy, and providing more continuous dopaminergic stimulation as well ...

Black Mirror, the iconic British anthology series asks what could happen to our identities, memories, social and personal selves, life and death after getting in touch with the digital. What could happen to the most complex and least understood human organ, the brain, being exposed to powerful, dimension-altering perception? We pondered on whether the current state of technology and research could ever take us on the dystopian, blind alley called future in Black Mirror. [SPOILER ALERT: the article contains a detailed description of episodes] Waldo’s predictions of politics On the day after the U.S. election, when ev...
