    Cognitive dysfunction is a major course of disability inpatients with multiple sclerosis (MS). The prevalence of cognitivedys-function (CD) is estimated up to 65% MS patients. Natural history studies suggest that CD develops early in MS even in a clinically isolated syndrome and it is not likely...

    The loss of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline occurs constantly in Parkinson's disease. This is supposed to worsen disease progression, either by increasing the vulnerability of dopamine-containing neurons or by reducing the recovery once they are damaged. Novel data also show that the loss of...

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is not usually considered helpful for establishing the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, but it is much more important to support the clinical diagnosis in atypical parkinsonian disorders. In multiple system atrophy with predominant parkinsonian features (MSA-P),...
