Discovering the cause or etiology of diseases such as Parkinson’s is essential to finding a treatment to prevent it. There are more and more advances in this field. And one of the latest ones is that Parkinson’s could be an autoimmune disease.
Two hundred years after the first trial that described Parkinson’s disease, advances are being made to identify its origin. Recently, a group of researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm discovered that it could originate in the bowels and spread to the brain through the vagus nerve.
Virtual reality is a computer system that generates representations of reality. With the use of special glasses, you can have the feeling of entering into that illusion and interacting with what is there. There are numerous applications, for example, it can be used as a tool in the fight against Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. The possibility of using virtual reality for early diagnosis of these diseases is currently being investigated.
