Neurological Studies Launched

JAMA. 2005;293(16):1966. doi:10.1001/jama.293.16.1966-c

Scientists at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke are embarking on clinical studies in Parkinson disease and cerebral palsy, which will be conducted at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Md.

In one study, investigators will assess whether stimulating certain areas of the brain (in addition to administering the patient’s current medications) improves movement, balance, and walking in individuals with Parkinson disease. Participants must be aged 40 to 80 years and be taking levodopa medication. The study will last approximately 4 weeks and include eight 1-hour sessions. More information can be obtained by calling (301) 594-0937.
