It is unknown, how frequently Parkinson's Disease is complicated by dementia, depression and other neuro-psychiatric conditions. A study on the epidemiology of Parkinson's Disease with dementia found that 28% of people with Parkinson's Disease also had dementia. A third of people with Parkinson's Disease (33%) had depression. A majority of people with Parkinson's Disease (61%) had other significant psychopathological syndromes. Just under 30% had no neuro-psychiatric disorders. The study reveals for the first time comprehensively that the neuro-psychiatric problems in people with Parkinson's Disease in all stages of Parkinson's Disease and even early stages of Parkinson's Disease is considerable. Dementia is biochemically unrelated to Parkinson's Disease. They tend to coincide largely because they both happen to be more common with age. Depression is a common symptom in Parkinson's Disease because the insufficient dopamine that occurs in Parkinson's Disease affects the emotions as well as the muscles.
