BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast

Aug 1, 2019

In one of our previous Teaching through Clinical Cases, Dr. Sneha Mantri (formerly a movement disorders fellow at the Philadelphia VA, now an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Duke) took us through the case of a gentleman with gait instability and falls. We are re-releasing this show with an update on the 2017 revised diagnostic criteria for the neurologic condition experienced by this patient.

Produced by James E. Siegler. Music courtesy of Julie Maxwell, Yan Terrien, Josh Woodward, Quantum Jazz, and Pachyderm. Sound effects by Mike Koenig and Daniel Simion.
