Caption

Parkinson's disease. Section of a brainstem belonging to a patient with Parkinson's disease (bottom) compared with a section of a healthy brainstem (top). The comparison shows a loss of dopamine-secreting (dopaminergic) cells (the substantia nigra, blue bands). Parkinson's disease is a movement disorder caused by this loss of cells and the resulting loss of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter necessary for normal motor function.
