Science for the Public: Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations

Jill R. Crittenden, Ph.D., Scientific Advisor, McGovern Institute for Brain Research, MIT.

Dr. Crittenden appeared December 10, 2020 on Science for the Public’s Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations. She discussed her extensive research on how disruptions in neural mechanisms result in movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and also less permanent dysfunctions. This research uses sophisticated analysis, very advanced technology, and genetic engineering.
