Compensatory Mechanisms in Parkinson’s Disease


January 17, 2024

Don't miss this American Physiological Society webinar! Review compensatory mechanisms, including cerebral plasticity and behavioral adaptation, in people with Parkinson’s disease.

Key topics include:
  • The clinical phenotype of Parkinson’s disease is shaped not just by neurodegeneration in the basal ganglia, but also by adaptive neuroplasticity taking place in other intact brain areas.
  • People living with Parkinson’s disease show a remarkable ability to overcome motor and nonmotor deficits by developing a wide range of compensatory strategies.
  • Recognizing these different types of compensatory strategies opens exciting new avenues for innovative therapies, both as symptomatic treatment for people with Parkinson’s disease, and perhaps also as a disease-modifying strategy.
