Jay L. Alberts, Ph.D., Edward and Barbara Bell Family Endowed Chair, Dept. of Biomedical Engineering, Center for Neurological Restoration, Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, VA FES Center and Cleveland Clinic discusses his research into the effects of forced exercise on a range of Parkinson's symptoms. Dr. Alberts' talk compares and contrasts outcomes of voluntary and forced exercise and provides insight into where the ongoing exercise research will be focused in order to close the gap between animal and human models. Dr. Alberts' tandem studies are well known in the Parkinson's community, and his presentation offers compelling data and motivation for advancing the study of therapeutic exercise as a viable treatment option.
