We know that L-dopa temporarily provide patients’ functioning close to normal. It crosses the blood-brain barrier where it is transformed into dopamine. Perhaps the improvement is only
momentanous temporary because the increased activity of dopaminergic brain structures compensate for a while other damages. Or maybe the sustained injury is so extended /severe that the moment of normal functioning deepens it and the brain has to come back to the limited functioning just to survive.
