Whither to the Creeping Paralysis? Progress on the road to curing motor neuron disease

Professor Chris Shaw

The lecture will cover a description of how we diagnose and treat Motor Neuron Disease, why motor neurons degenerate and the genetic basis of disease. It will also cover new cellular and animal models of disease that are informing us about disease mechanisms and will advance drug discovery.  

This is part of a special series of lectures in collaboration with the Institute of Psychiatry.  Other lectures in this series on the Public Understanding of Psychiatry during this academic year include the following:
      Brain reconstruction
      The psychological health of the UK Armed Forces
      Tracking the health of 1,000 children from birth to maturity
