Summary This book aims to provide a single reference source on levodopa-induced dyskinesias (LID) from?bench to bedside?. Initial chapters review the clinical features and phenomenology of LID with video examples; epidemiology and genetic risk factors for LID are covered as a background to understanding risk factors for developing LID. The following chapters cover the latest preclinical studies aiming to understand the pathophysiology of LID at the cellular, neurochemical, neurophysiological and circuitry level with detailed discussion of mechanisms and future directions to take the field forward; clinical studies from phase II to phase IV; ongoing RCTs in LID; and evidence-based medicine reviews of treatment options. Levodopa-Induced Dyskinesia in Parkinson?s Disease is aimed at an international audience of movement disorder neurologists; neuroscientists; trainees; and graduate and post-graduate students
