    Sarah Furtado
    Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
    Mov Disord 19:622-9. 2004
    ..This review emphasizes the importance of testing for SCA2 in patients with parkinsonism and a family history of neurodegenerative disorders. Testing for SCA2 is also important in studies of inherited parkinsonism...
  2. doi request reprint Degradation of stored movement representations in the Parkinsonian brain and the impact of levodopa
    Jolyn N A D'Andrea
    Department of Medical Sciences, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada
    Neuropsychologia 51:1195-203. 2013
    ..Overall, this study demonstrates that difficulty initiating voluntary movements experienced by PD patients may be the result of degradation in stored representations responsible for the movement...
  3. doi request reprint Prevalence of problem and pathological gambling in Parkinson's disease
    David Crockford
    Department of Psychiatry, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2N 2T9
    J Gambl Stud 24:411-22. 2008
    ..Most subjects with problem and PG reported their gambling increased after being diagnosed with PD and starting treatment. The results suggest that brain dopaminergic activity is involved in the underlying neurobiology of problem and PG...

    Cory Toth
    Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
    Mov Disord 23:1850-9. 2008
    ..PN in PD patients may be associated with iatrogenic Cbl metabolic abnormalities. Alternatively PN may be a peripheral nervous system manifestation of PD...

    Scott Kraft
    Movement Disorsders program, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
    Can J Neurol Sci 32:450-8. 2005
    ..The spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) are a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders. Relative frequencies vary within different ethnic groups and geographical locations...

    Raul de la Fuente-Fernandez
    Pacific Parkinson s Research Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B C, Canada
    Synapse 49:20-8. 2003
    ..This is in keeping with a role for VMAT2 in other cellular processes (i.e., sequestration and release from the cell of potential toxic products), in addition to its importance for the quantal release of monoamines...
  7. ncbi request reprint Levodopa-induced changes in synaptic dopamine levels increase with progression of Parkinson's disease: implications for dyskinesias
    Raul de la Fuente-Fernandez
    Pacific Parkinson s Research Centre, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada
    Brain 127:2747-54. 2004
    ..Large levodopa-induced increases in synaptic dopamine concentration can lead to dramatic changes in receptor occupancy, which may be responsible for the emergence of peak-dose dyskinesias in Parkinson's disease...
