Doctor in the House: Reprogramming Brain Cells Against Parkinson’s Disease

It starts with a tremor, then your face loses its expression and your arms its sway. Those are the progressive symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, a disorder of our nerves that can rob us of our mobility and speech. We cannot yet cure Parkinson’s Disease, but scientists and doctors are learning more by the day and trying new methods. We discuss recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s Disease.
