Association of Psychosis and Movement Disorders in the Elderly
Review articleOpen access
Abstract:

Motor function and cognition often demonstrate age- related alterations, and these are quite apparent when considering the interface of psychosis and movement disorders. Although dopaminergic mechanisms are undoubtedly important, the current state of knowledge does not allow for a comprehensive theory regarding the relationship of dopamine, aging, movement disorders, and psychosis. In this article, age-related changes in motor functioning are discussed, with special reference to dopamine systems. A variety of different pathologic conditions are then presented in which motor and cognitive pathology appears to be related to or influenced by the aging process.
