Dr Stacy
Is your research on Parkinson's limitied to movement or are involved with all research? The reason I ask is I would like to know what progress has been made in other areas of the disease, such as memory.

Thanks

Hi, worn1
I have research interests mainly in PD, but work in applied research, developing new treatments in PD, dystonia, tremor and Huntington's disease.

Dr Stacy do you think acupuncture along with a good exercise program could replace the medications?
