The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

The Rats Got It Good!

In a discussion I had with my neuro, he told me there’s bunch of new meds on the horizon for Parkinson’s but they’ve only tested them on rats. I said “The rats got it good!” So I thought about how they might test the “caffeine/nicotine” idea that coffee and nicotine staves off Parkinson’s. Did they give the mice tiny cups of coffee and teeny weeny cigarettes?
