October’s podcast gives the low-down on new treatments for Parkinson’s – in particular deep brain stimulation

In the latest 30-minute episode of the Portland Countdown podcast series, regular hosts Dave Iverson and Jon Palfreman discuss the latest research on new surgical and non-surgical interventions for Parkinson’s disease with special guest Dr Andres Lozano.

The show focuses on a subject we can “genuinely be excited about”, says Jon. “That’s how neurologists are building on the success of deep brain stimulation (DBS), to pioneer new applications for the procedure and also to uncover some of the deeper mysteries of Parkinson’s disease, and indeed the brain.”

The aim of the Portland Countdown series is to give listeners new perspectives on the latest advances in Parkinson’s research and treatment.

The shows, developed by the World Parkinson Coalition, are aired online on the first Tuesday of every month from June 2015 to September 2016 – when the 4th World Parkinson Congress takes place in Portland, Oregon, US. The podcasts are free and available for download.
