About

    The University of Michigan has been awarded an NIH-funded grant to establish the Morris K. Udall Parkinson's Disease Research Center of Excellence at the University of Michigan. The new University of Michigan Udall Center will conduct research studies to examine, in close detail, faulty mechanisms in the brain that may underlie gait and balance abnormalities in persons with Parkinson's disease (PD). Balance and gait problems may cause severe impairment for people with PD, significantly affecting their quality of life. Research has shown that several changes occur in the brains of PD patients. The hallmark change is a loss of a neurotransmitter ('chemical messenger' between brain cells) called dopamine. To alleviate PD symptoms doctors prescribe dopamine replacement therapy, for example Sinemet (levodopa).
