While reading a part of the “Brain storms” I realised how little I know about Parkinson’s disease. It made me realise how common the disease is and how much more common it’ll become with growing percent of eldery people I find it fascinating that some examples trace back to twelve century B.C. or ancient Indian Ayurvedic. I’m glad that I got educated about the variety of symptomps (ex. micrographia) that can develop. What made me really happy is the community around Parkinson’s disease. Pamela Quinn Parkinson’s Movement Lab is a very good example here. The fact that she was a professional dancer and is able to use that to conduct classes is really amazing.
