The dopaminergic nigrostriatal pathway has been linked to the symptoms of PD (Bergman & Deuschl, 2002) because this pathway connects the substantia nigra (the source of dopaminergic neurons) with other parts of the basal ganglia and brain, facilitating coordinated movement.

20) suggests that impaired information process in ADHD impairs adaptation to academic norms and this causes anxiety in the executive function disorder model of Barkley (2'), the author has reported that impairment in executive functions impairs the social behaviors and the relationships with family and friends and this may cause anxiety Levy (19) has suggested that impairment in mesolimbic, mesocortical, and nigrostriatal cycles because of impairment in the physiology of nucleus accumbency in ADHD causes anxiety Approaching to this situation through a different angle, ADHD-like symptoms such as hyperactivity and inattentiveness may also be observed in AD (22).
The nigrostriatal pathway of dopamine (in the subcortical areas of the brain) has a prominent role in motor planning and movement, plus cognition.
Results showed that after follow-up, patients' SPECT scans revealed substantial decreases in radiotracer binding to the dopamine transport system in the nigrostriatal regions of the brain.
