Non-motor symptoms are common but often overlooked in Parkinson's disease. This eBriefing examines new approaches to studying disease mechanisms, which could lead to a better understanding of pathogenesis and to the development of new therapies.
Keynote Speaker: Frank Hu (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health)
This eBriefing explores research on metabolic health from several disciplines and looks at how different types of data combine to explain physiology and disease.

Discussions of the latest translational research, advanced brain imaging, & novel diagnostics
A recent conference held at the Academy asked a downright outrageous question: Can dementia be prevented by making changes to your diet? In this podcast we look at what the answers might be.
In the second of a two-part series, experts look at the links between health and nutrition. They examine everything from how nutrition impacts hospital stays, to cancer and aging, to developing food science innovations, and improving diet.
In this first of a two-part series, experts from various sectors explore the available options to reduce "hidden hunger"—micronutrient deficiencies in a population.
