yes. one neurotransmitter, such as dopamine, has a part to play in many brain functions and its lack has a widespread effect.

Yes, there are many things affected by PD. I too sometimes have word finding difficulties, very frustrating. I had the reputation of remembering everything before PD but can feel things gradually slipping away.

I have strategies at work though.

1, have created a spreadsheet detailing all my conversations about a child / family with hyperlinks to relevant info.

2, I keep a thorough online diary with details about what the meeting / visit entails or who I will be seeing.

3. I always write my notes up as soon as possible so I dont forget.

4. I keep endless lists

5. If someone asks me to do something, I do it straight away, then I know I won't forget.
