Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD) CBD is a rare type of Parkinsonism that can affect mental processes, personality and behaviour, as well as causing Parkinson’s-type symptoms. It tends to affect one side of the body more than the other and can cause an ‘alien limb’ syndrome, in which the person’s arms or legs may seem to move independently. CBD has some similarities with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).
