Abstract

Much of Parkinson's research over the last decade has focused on cellular stress as a candidate mechanism. In this issue of Neuron, a new study by Matta et al. (2012) addressing the biological functions of the Parkinson's gene LRRK2 now identifies a presynaptic substrate, homing in on the idea that synapse loss might be a central early aspect of neurodegeneration. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
