Baumann, Christian R; Waldvogel, Daniel (2013). The treatment of Parkinson's disease. Praxis, 102(25):1529-1535.

Abstract

Parkinson's disease belongs to the most prevalent neurodegenerative disorders and manifests both with motor and non-motor symptoms. Symptomatic treatment of this disorder became more multifaceted over the past years: besides classical dopaminergic drugs and physiotherapy, novel invasive escalation treatment strategies became gold standard in many countries. On the other hand, non-motor symptoms significantly impacts quality of life in many patients which necessitates initiation of adequate therapy.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
