Neuropsychiatric features of Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic, progressive, neurodegenerative condition that damages central nervous system pathways. In addition to the wellrecognised motor features of the disease, patients commonly experience nonmotor symptoms including neuropsychiatric complications. These symptoms may precede motor symptoms and have a very significant impact on quality of life for patients and their carers.
