While dopamine is well understood to play a key role in Parkinson's disease, studies over the last 20 years have shown that the neuromodulator adenosine is also involved in regulating movement through the indirect pathway in the basal ganglia. In this presentation, we will discuss how adenosine and dopamine work together in the direct and indirect pathways to control normal movement and how disruptions to adenosine signaling result in disordered movement, such as occurs in Parkinson's disease.
