2019 Neuroscience Symposium

September 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT

| Free

UTSA Neurosciences Institute presents the 2019 Neuroscience Symposium.

September 12, 2019 – 9AM – 5PM  || BSE 2.102 – UTSA Main Campus

Free and open to the public

 

  The motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease result from abnormal patterns of activity in surviving nondopaminergic neurons of the the basal ganglia following loss of dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra. The most prominent component of abnormal activity is an exaggerated oscillation in the beta frequency range (10-30 Hz) in field potentials and neuronal firing patterns in humans with the disease and in animal models of parkinsonism.

     Following an introduction to Parkinson’s disease, deep brain stimulation and pathologic oscillations by Dr. Jerrold Vitek, our panel will present a series of lectures that address 1) the causal role for exaggerated oscillations in Parkinson’s disease; 2) experimental studies of the origin of normal and maladaptive basal ganglia oscillations; and 3) existing and potential treatments aimed at disrupting oscillatory activity associated with the disease symptoms.
