Stanford neurologist discusses advances in research on movement disorders

In this new video, Helen Bronte-Stewart, MD, co-director of the Stanford Balance Center, discusses the brain networks involved in human action, the way in which impairments to these systems can cause movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, and research advancements in treating neurological conditions.

During her talk, Bronte-Stewart provides a framework for understanding different types of movement disorders and highlights ongoing studies at Stanford involving imaging, electrophysiology and deep brain stimulation. She also touches on the potential of future therapies involving novel technologies, such as optogenetics and engineered stem cells, in treating movement disorders.
