Why do our brains degenerate and what can we do about it? As the U.S. workforce ages, scientists are in a race to understand where these diseases begin to stop or better manage it. The latest research suggests events that may predispose patients to neurodegenerative diseases include stress and failures in our cells and proteins. Many think cognitive decline of disease begins decades before diagnosis. Hear from an expert about the effect of targeted deep brain stimulation on Parkinson’s patients and learn more about stem cell and gene therapies on the horizon.
