The new edition of this book is a comprehensive update on one of the most common and complex neurodegenerative diseases. The handbook comprises an extensive list of chapters, addressing all elements of Parkinson disease. Each chapter is sufficiently detailed with an extensive list of references for further reading. The chronology of chapters is well arranged from history to epidemiology, followed by pathophysiology, diverse clinical manifestations and comorbidities, neuroimaging techniques, animal models, genetics, and, last but not least, comprehensive medical and surgical management along with ancillary therapies for Parkinson disease.
