Expert talk

Dr Louise Parr-Brownlie

For the last 30 years, treatments for Parkinson’s disease have focused on relieving the motor symptoms of the disease in an area of the brain called the basal ganglia. Whilst the treatments involved are helpful, side effects have a strong tendency develop in the majority of patients.

During this talk, Dr Parr-Brownlie will share the journey from discovering that motor thalamus connections and cell activity are changed in the parkinsonian brain, and outline how this knowledge is being applied to develop and test a potential new treatment.
