As disease affects the brain, it alters the body’s basic functions, including speech, vision, movement and digestion, thoughts and mood. No one knows this more intimately than the millions of people affected by neurological disorders.
Neurosciences researchers and caregivers at UW Medicine’s Neurosciences Institute are unlocking the mysteries of the brain, the most complex organ in the human body, and finding faster, better treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, neuromuscular disorders, neuro-oncology, traumatic brain injury and more.
