There are so many exciting projects going on in dystonia research that it has become hard to keep up with all of the advances. We sat down with one of the worlds top dystonia and Parkinson imaging researchers (Dr. David Vaillancourt) to talk about the “top 5” updates in therapies and in dystonia imaging research.
Who is David Vaillancourt?
1) What is imaging and how is it used in dystonia?
2) What is a specific example in humans for how imaging is being used in dystonia?
3) What is a specific example in animals for how imaging is being used in dystonia?
4) How can imaging be used in humans to assess a new therapeutic (e.g. drug, device)?
5) What does this all mean for people with dystonia?
