Course Summary

Why to enroll this course?

This free online course is aimed at anyone who wants to find out the fundamentals of Parkinson’s disease.

We will look at how Parkinson’s disease affects people; what causes it; what we can do to try to ameliorate the symptoms of Parkinson’s; and what we don’t yet know about it.

As one of the most prevalent neurodegenerative diseases, most people at least know of one person who has Parkinson’s disease.

We can then apply this knowledge to thinking about how current therapies for Parkinson’s disease work.

You can begin by looking at the basics of the human brain and go on to learn more about Parkinson’s disease and drug origins.
