So in a very simplified explanation, if you aint got the right APP, then your brain damage stays with thee. no repair, it just builds up until you seem brain damaged. A boxer with the defect sint going to repair brain cells properly. A boxer without the defect is going to repair brain cells fine.

The theory is supported by studies in mice. And also, you might know that Downs Syndrome sufferers have an abnormal chromosome 21. They also all universally suffer from Alzheimers disease by the age of 40, which is a disease that reflects a lot of the cognitive effects of PD.

Theres other theories too. Bear in mind that the above is a very bare bones explanation, using laymans terms.
i can confirm this is bang on

some interesting points guys. Thats one of the worst things about studying healthcare sciences - you get to know how long people have left - and that includes knowing about your relatives if they have one of those diseases thats basically sitting on a genetic death row. Its horrible knowledge.

I agree that sometimes it almost feels better not to know this shit, and just stick with reading a happily oblivious arts degree at Goldsmiths College.
