Scientists from the University of Luxembourg have developed a three-dimensional diagram of the neurons die in the brain with the progression of Parkinson's disease. Pathology develops in the death of nerve cells that produce dopamine. Most of them in chetverokonnoj of the midbrain.
The process of destruction of cells is slow but irreversible. No modern medicine is not able to slow the disease. Previously, scientists attempted to create a network of nerve cells, however, the three-dimensional model was able to recreate for the first time. The neurons are located in the gel, that repeats their actual location in the human brain.
The study of brain activity in Parkinson's disease, experts say, will help in a short time to develop effective medications to slow the progress of disease or complete cure from it.
