BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast


Apr 30, 2020

It’s 2020, and for the first time in its 72-year history, the American Academy of Neurology has cancelled its annual meeting because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But that does not mean we (BrainWaves producers, not the AAN) can’t provide a few major updates to advances in neurology and neurotherapeutics! This week on the program, Jim Siegler is joined by Dr. Sammita Satyanarayan (Stanford) on a whirlwind tour of some of the latest advances in neurology from this past year. Enjoy!
