Non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease cause suffering in
a significant number of patients and represent a critical unmet need that has
not yet been adequately addressed. Non-motor symptoms include cognitive
problems, mood disorders, psychosis, depression, dementia, sleep disturbances,
pain, hyposmia, and autonomic dysfunction. Speakers in this symposium will
review clinical tools for the diagnosis and treatment of these symptoms,
discuss their underlying neurobiological basis, and address current and emerging
preclinical models available for the development of new therapies.
