Why detecting the earliest biological signs of Parkinson’s disease is so crucial

Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, behind Alzheimer's disease, and affects nearly a million people in the United States. A new test can detect the biological signature of Parkinson’s disease before symptoms arise. Dr. Kathleen Poston explains why early diagnosis opens the door to better therapies.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s biomarkers show promise for early diagnosis

New research supported by the Knight Initiative for Brain Resilience at Stanford’s Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute highlights significant strides researchers have made in developing biomarkers for early detection and monitoring of neurodegenerative diseases —  including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD) and Lewy Body Disease (LBD).

Redefining Parkinson's Disease

PODCAST: Join Kathleen Poston, MD, MS and Nicholas Weiler to learn about exciting advances in our ability to detect the brain pathology driving Parkinson's disease and related disorders much earlier, even before symptoms arise, and how this is opening doors for early intervention and — hopefully — prevention.

5th Grade Gratitude at Moving Day® 2016

We say out of the mouths of babes when a small child shows an adult’s wisdom and understanding of a situation. This phrase was fitting when Mrs. Kochar’s fifth grade class at Pioneer Elementary School in Union City wrote letters of gratitude to local leaders in neuroscience research and treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
