  Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder due to selective neuronal cell death resulting in tremor, muscle stiffness and loss of motor abilities. 

Providing you with detailed information about all neurological disorders is beyond the scope of this web site.  Instead, I have compiled a list of useful website links that you can refer to for accurate information.  When available, sites in Arabic are also listed.  Periodically new information will be added for each topic specifically.

These sites have been compiled from several sources including: 

  • The American Academy of Neurology Patient Information Guide
  • The US Department of Health & Human Services Booklet of Neurological Disorders – Voluntary Health Agencies & Other Patient Resources
  • General Search of the World Wide Web
