You'll learn how fascinating the cerebellum truly is and gain an understanding of how OT affects more than just your ability to stand.
- 2 hours of high-quality content offered by board certified neuropsychologist Dr. Karen D. Sullivan on Zoom from the comfort of your home
- Current neuroscientific research that confirms Orthostatic Tremor (OT) is due to dysfunction in a part of the brain called the cerebellum
- This webinar will provide a detailed summary on the current scientific thinking on the cerebellum and its non-motor functions including the latest research on the “cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome” and how OT likely affects cognition (word finding, speech and memory) and mood (increased irritability, anxiety, and depression).
- Also includes research on the role of stress in worsening cerebellar disorders and the impact of the two most common medications for OT on cognition: Clonazepam and Gabapentin
- Feel validated that what you experience beyond your motor symptoms is real
- Live Q&A after the lecture with Dr. Sullivan
- With purchase, you will receive a link to watch the webinar video replay as many times as you want and a PDF of Dr. Sullivan’s PowerPoint presentation for future reference.
