Why has it taken so long for researchers to focus on the challenges of non-motor symptoms? This month’s podcast discusses the wide-ranging non-motor Parkinson’s symptoms


In the latest Portland Countdown podcast, regular hosts Dave Iverson and Jon Palfreman invite special guest Dr. K. Ray Chaudhuri – chairman of the RLS:UK and International PD non motor group – to discuss the challenges posed by non-motor Parkinson’s symptoms such as sleep problems and changes in mental health.

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.
