Geriatric medicine applies the knowledge and clinical skills of the organ-based specialties to a complex group. This group is defined by the reduction in physiological capacity that makes them more susceptible to disease and mortality. As a result they frequently have multiple pathology and illness often presents in atypical ways with confusion, falls, or loss of mobility and day-to-day functioning. Ageing is not an 'intrinsic' process, as it occurs in the context of an organism's interaction with the environment. Due to all these the impact of studying the degenerative diseases among this group holds great importance hence one of the most common disease produced by degeneration of neurons particularly related to basal ganglia i.e, Parkinson’s disease afflicts >1 million individuals in the United States (1% of those > 55 years) peak age of onset in the 60s (range is 35 to 85); course progressive over 10 to 25 years. The incidence ratesin different countries vary from 1.5 to 20 per 100,000 per year. It is in detail to explore the anatomical concepts behind it which will be helpful in further treatment.
