For these seizures, they are typically categorized into focal or generalized seizures,
It is like a transmitter in the brain and is important for the signals that it sends to the central nervous system and according to the article I found on Functions of Dopamine, “it is what allows information to be passed from one neuron to another”. (Functions of Dopamine, 2018) Some of the functions of dopamine are; motor activity, cognition, emotion, and reward. There are also disorders that are associated with having a low amount of dopamine such as depression and movement disorders. Some of the more serious disorders are schizophreniz, ADHD, OCD, Tourette’s syndrome, and drug abuse. Then if there is a death of dopamine neurons it causes Parkinson’s disease, where a person is robbed of the ability to have smooth and controlled movements.

These differences appear in their causes, patient’s age, and some symptoms. Dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter, causes PD when the patient’s brain slowly stops producing it.  On the other hand, the main cause of HD is a deficiency in GABA, which functions as receptors for the neurotransmitters.  PD usually affects people with an average age of fifty to seventy years, whereas HD infects younger people between the age of thirty to fifty years.  Moreover, HD and PD differ in their symptoms.
The symptoms often show that these changes occur visibly in the patients thus identification of Parkinson’s disease would be easily detected. Despite these given symptom organizations such as Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (2015) classify Parkinson’s disease through its four major symptoms which are tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity, and Postural instability. Tremor or resting tremor is classified as the trembling of the hands or feet occurring when they are at rest that start with one part, in time, starts at the other one according to Leiberman (2003). This trembling often occurs to the first stage of Parkinson Disease in a mild instance such as the trembling stops as the person moves or stretches it out. While stated by Help Guide (N.D) bradykinesia manifests as slowness in voluntary movement such as standing up, walking, and sitting down.
I chose the most common medications that are frequently used, those being ; Beta Blockers, ACE inhibitors, and Angiotensin receptor blockers. Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of adrenaline in the body which is also known as (hormone epinephrine). The beta blockers work by opening up the blood vessels to improve the blood flow. The most common symptoms that come with beta blockers are dizziness and dry mouth, skin, or eyes. As for ACE inhibitors they serve to primarily relax the blood vessels.
Splints, prostheses and hot and cold packs can also be beneficial to the person with spasticity. Pharmacological interventions: Oral prescriptions such as baclofen, benzodiazepines, dantrolene and tizanidine are the most commonly used medications to assist in controlling the symptoms of spasticity. Botulinum is also common and is injected straight into the affected muscle group to reduce unwanted spasms or paralyze the muscle completely. The use of prescription medication is effective; however, these drugs often have unwanted side-effects, including, drowsiness and
