Parkinsonâ€™s disease is a degenerative brain disorder that affects movement. In Parkinsonâ€™s, cells in a certain part of the midbrain (the substantia nigra) begin to die. These cells produce dopamine, a chemical messenger (neurotransmitter) that helps to control body movement. As more dopamine-producing cells are damaged, symptoms begin to appear.
