BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast

Dec 6, 2018

You may be able to recognize chorea. But what does it make you think of besides Huntington Disease? In this two part series, we'll cover the clinical manifestations, differential diagnosis, and management of Huntington Disease. In part 1, Dr. Travis Lewis (University of Pennsylvania) creates a framework for hyperkinetic movement disorders and HD. Part 2 will focus on the current and future therapeutics of this neurodegenerative condition.

Produced by Travis Lewis & James E. Siegler. Music by Azevedo Silva, Chris Zabriskie, Cullah, John Bartmann, and Nuno Adelaida. Sound effects by Mike Koenig and Daniel Simion.
