Brain Fables: The Hidden History of Neurodegenerative Diseases and a Blueprint to Conquer Them

Availability: Ready to download

An estimated 80 million people live with a neurodegenerative disease. That number is expected to increase rapidly as populations age, lifespans increase, and exposure to toxins rises. Despite decades of research and billions in funding, there are no medications that can slow, much less stop, the progress of these diseases. This is because diseases such as Parkinson's and A An estimated 80 million people live with a neurodegenerative disease. That number is expected to increase rapidly as populations age, lifespans increase, and exposure to toxins rises. Despite decades of research and billions in funding, there are no medications that can slow, much less stop, the progress of these diseases. This is because diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's do not exist in biology. Yet, hundreds of clinical trials around the world are examining the potential of single therapies in thousands of people sharing one of these labels. Compounding the problem, these therapies were developed on evidence from models that do not come close to capturing the complexity of these diseases in the affected humans. These practices must end. Brain Fables is a call to refocus on understanding living and aging to create the personalized treatments each affected individual desperately needs.

    Hi everyone! This book was very interesting... I'm hopefully going into med school this year and I love learning about the brain and diseases that we haven't fully understood yet. In fact, this book actually inspired and motivated me to study :). 'Brain Fables' is divided into two points of view: one that analyzes the discovery of Parkinson's and its research and the other one: a middle aged man that got diagnosed and his journey through acceptance and hope in new treatments (using both eastern an Hi everyone! This book was very interesting... I'm hopefully going into med school this year and I love learning about the brain and diseases that we haven't fully understood yet. In fact, this book actually inspired and motivated me to study :). 'Brain Fables' is divided into two points of view: one that analyzes the discovery of Parkinson's and its research and the other one: a middle aged man that got diagnosed and his journey through acceptance and hope in new treatments (using both eastern and western medicine). I understand this book might not be for anyone, but if you're interested in medicine or even Parkinson's disease in particular, you should definitely read this book

    Technical and easy to read. I agree with Alberto and Ben’s arguments about the future of Parkinson’s research needing a shift. I look forward to the outcomes.
