The mechanism involved in dopaminergic neuronal death remains unknown. Increased oxidative stress, inhibition of mitochondrial respiratory chain and apoptosis have been suggested as possible factors mediating cellular death. This article reviews the most important findings reported in parkinsonian brains related to nigral neuronal death.
