Neurodegeneration refers to the gradual loss of structure and operation of neurons, including death of neurons. The theme of the current paper is to discuss two diseases linked with the neurodegeneration process: Parkinson and Alzheimer disease. Also, the differences between the two diseases will be discussed.

[...] Parkinson's disease is linked with extrapyramidal symptoms bur Alzheimer's disease is related with continued loss of cognitive thinking which advances until the patient is unable to undertake normal daily activities.

[...] Dementia is evident in the advanced phases of Parkinson's disease. The causes are unknown but are believed to be both environmental and genetic factors (Campdelacreu, 2014). The motor symptoms of arise due to death of substantia nigra cells, which leads to insufficient dopamine in the areas. Alzheimer's disease Alzheimer's disease is a gradual neurodegenerative condition that breaks up one's memory. It is a popular source of dementia collection of brain disorders that cause loss of social and intellectual skills). The symptoms became serious with time, interfering with daily life activities.

[...] Also, contact with non-pesticide composites like metals, organohalogens, and solvent has continuously been reported Parkinson's disease risk factors (Campdelacreu, 2014). Conclusion Therefore, both Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease are degenerative brain conditions. Parkinson's disease is instigated by a reduction in the level of dopamine, while Alzheimer's disease is linked absence of acetylcholine. Parkinson's disease is cured through ongoing agonist and dopamine precursor therapies while Alzheimer's disease is cured using acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and may be avoided through engagement in mentally refreshing actions. However, Parkinson's disease prevention can be through evading multiple concussions. [...]
