Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease, where the reduction of dopamine (DA) in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc)-striatal, ventral tegmental area (VTA)-cortex, and VTA-limbic pathways leads to the motor and nonmotor symptoms (NMS) of the disease.

Dopamine is produced in the neurons of the pars compacta region of the substantia nigra within the basal ganglia, but also in other areas of the CNS and throughout the body (Herrero et al.

Here the main pathological feature is degeneration of neuromelanin-containing neurons in the pars compacta of the substantia nigra, which leads directly or indirectly to excessive inhibition of the thalamus and consequent bradykinesia.
It is characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta and other parts of the brain, leading to motor impairment, cognitive impairment, and dementia.
