Join Osama Refai, Ph.D., as he talks about how disrupting dopamine in the brain can cause multiple neurodegenerative and behavioral disorders, including Parkinson's disease, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, addiction and schizophrenia.

Using the powerful genetic worm model, C. elegans, Osama discovered a gene that supports the health and function of dopamine neurons. Treatments with the novel gene, or its product, protect against aging-induced neurodegeneration in a model of Parkinson’s disease.
