Newly discovered mechanism reveals how Parkinson's disease can spread between brain cells

Tiny channels between nerve cells are involved in a newly discovered mechanism of how Parkinson's disease can spread throughout the brain, according to new research from Linköping University, Sweden. The results demonstrate that harmful protein aggregates, or deposits, can bind and 'hitch a lift' with channel-forming proteins, and in this way spread to healthy cells. The study has been published in Acta Neuropathologica.
