Diseases and Therapies
This chapter discusses therapies that have been used for neurological and psychiatric illnesses. For Parkinsonism, therapies focused on suppressing cholinergic pathways and potentiating dopaminergic pathways of the extrapyramidal motor system. For schizophrenia and depression, therapies came from a folk medicine which took note of clinical responses to drugs administered for other purposes.
