Enabling biomarker identification and treatment optimization for prevalent neurological disorders, led by Drs. Robert Chen,
Mary Pat McAndrews and Jonathan Downar
[Editor's Note: Link is no longer available] (Krembil), will enhance our understanding of how different components of the affected brain networks interact in Parkinson disease, major depression and epilepsy
