Were you looking for information about Parkinson's Disease? Parkensins is a common misspelling of Parkinson's disease.
James Parkinson first described Parkinson's disease in 1817, although this brain condition has been identified as early as 5000 B.C. This degenerative brain disorder typically begins in the middle to later part of life. Although researchers have not yet identified the exact cause of Parkinson's disease, it is known that the movement problems characteristic of this condition result from a loss of a certain brain chemical (dopamine). There is also no known cure for Parkinson's disease at this time, although medications, lifestyle changes, and surgery may help to significantly relieve many symptoms.
