Dopamine and movement.....
Neuroscientist Arvid Carlsson died on June 29, 2018. He devoted his life to understanding how the brain works. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering how dopamine effects movement. Dopamine is a chemical in the body that is made from the amino acid tyrosine. Dopamine is one of the neurotransmitters in the brain that is part of the information network. Arvid Carlsson experimented with rabbits. He decreased the amount of dopamine in the brains of the rabbits and found that they had the same movement problems found in people with Parkinson's Disease. Parkinson's Disease is a neurodegenerative disease that causes the brain cells to die over time. People with this disease have problems with movement that includes uncontrollable shaking, slowed movement, and sudden freezing. So the logical thing to do was to give dopamine pills or injections. This did not work because the dopamine does not cross the brain barrier. So they then started using the precursor to dopamine called levodopa. This helps with some of the symptoms, but does not stop the brain from it's cell loss.
LENS neurofeedback can help to slow the progression of auto-immune disease. It will not cure these diseases.
