Mindful Pause: Rewire Your Brain
It’s estimated that 95% of our behavior runs on autopilot—something I call “fast brain.” That’s because neural networks underlie all of our habits, reducing our millions of sensory inputs per second into manageable shortcuts so we can function in this crazy world. These default brain signals are like signaling superhighways, so efficient that they often cause us to relapse into old behaviors before we remember what we meant to do instead.Read more...

On May 25, 2022 the World Parkinson’s Congress Research Spotlight had a webinar entitled “Stem cells for treating PD- Hope or Hype?”
Here’s a link to the You Tube presentation, and also a short (less comprehensive) essay on the topic Click here.
In preclinical studies, NE3107 was found to lessen inflammation within the nervous system and ease insulin resistance, slowing
neurodegeneration and improving nerve function. In a primate model of Parkinson's, NE3107 in combination with levodopa led to a greater improvement in motor control than either therapy alone. firstname.lastname@example.org
For dozens of years, we've been searching for a bio market for Parkinson's. A blood test or something else to objectively confirm diagnosis. And today - there's promising news in early stages of a blood test for PD. Click here for details
Participants Wanted for a Research Study Examining the exercise and physical activity needs and values of people with Parkinson’s disease
Our partners at the University of Connecticut's goal is to improve the lives of individuals living with Parkinson’s disease through the combination of exercise, support, and technology.
Participants can select whether they want to participate in person or through a virtual conference meeting. In-person sessions will take place at the University of Connecticut, Kinesiology building, 3107 Horsebarn Hill Rd, Storrs, CT or UConn Health, Outpatient Pavilion, 135 Dowling Way, Farmington, CT.
A $50 gift card will be provided to participants after the completion of the research study.
