This is a free educational program of the Mayfield Foundation to help you learn about the inner workings of your brain, symptoms you shouldn't ignore, the heart-brain connection, and emerging therapies and technologies.

We've asked our team of neurosurgeons and physical therapists at Mayfield Brain & Spine to lend their expertise in a series of 1-hour webinars.

The programs are held monthly at 6pm. See the schedule of upcoming talks below. Grab a snack and a notebook and sign up for one, two or all of the webinars--free of charge! You will have an opportunity to ask questions and have them answered in real time.

Headaches and Other Symptoms Not to Ignore

This presentation is sponsored by ProScan Imaging

 

Everyday ailments like headache, dizziness, and forgetfulness are symptoms we've all had from time to time. They typically go away on their own. However, sometimes they persist or are more severe than usual. These symptoms can also be a sign of more worrisome problems in the brain. This talk will review symptoms you shouldn't ignore and when to get them checked out.

Understanding Your Heart-Brain Connection

Did you know that taking care of your heart also helps your brain health? We have long known that diseases clogging the arteries of the heart can also clog the arteries of the brain. Arterial damage leads to arterial blockages, which lead to strokes, vascular insufficiency, or vascular dementia. Learn how a heart-healthy lifestyle supports our brain and improves memory and cognitive function.

New Developments in Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson's

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgery to implant a device that sends electrical signals to brain areas responsible for body movement. Electrodes are placed deep in the brain and connected to a stimulator device. Similar to a heart pacemaker, a neurostimulator uses electric pulses to regulate brain activity. DBS can help reduce the symptoms of tremor, slowness, stiffness, and walking problems caused by Parkinson's disease or essential tremor. Successful DBS allows people to potentially reduce their medications and improve their quality of life.
