The prevalence of the disease, the most common signs and symptoms, and neuropathology are described.

In the context of the mind-body medicine approach, hypnosis results an effective method and may also help to improve the conditions of patients with PD, naturally linked to this therapeutic approach by the phenomenon of temporal distortion and its neurobiological correlates.
