Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) and dementia of Alzheimer type (DAT) are both progressive neurodegenerative processes. The outstanding characteristics of both diseases are neuron loss in the neurotransmitter synthesizing areas and a decline in neurotransmitter content in those areas, which are the targets of these neurons, although degenerations differ between both diseases.
