Today is ‪#‎WorldParkinsonsDay‬, and researchers and clinicians at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have been working on finding novel therapies for those who suffer from Parkinson’s disease, a slowly progressing movement disorder that results in a loss of dopamine-producing brain cells and the loss of other neurons throughout the nervous system. Check out the exciting developments they’ve made here: http://bit.ly/1NdL3AG. ‪#‎50MillionFaces

Dr. Clemens Scherzer and colleagues at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases recently identified a potentially effective biomarker for early Parkinson's disease. They found that reduced expression levels of the alpha-synuclein (SNCA) gene--related to the αSyn protein implicated in disease progression--are associated with Parkinson's. This was true even for patients who did not yet have symptoms that meet standard diagnosis criteria. SNCA levels can be obtained from a simple blood test, creating a pathway toward earlier, improved diagnosis and more effective clinical trials. ‪#‎50Million‬

David Vago, PhD, was invited to teach the monastics with the Dalai Lama at one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in India before thousands of Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns from monasteries across Asia. Vago presented on the neurobiology of self-processing based on a model created by himself and Dr. David Silbersweig. 
Since 1987 the Mind & Life Institute has organized regular dialogues between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and leading scientists and philosophers. The purpose of these meetings has been to creatively but critically investigate themes of mutual interest concerning the

Researchers at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases are investigating the development of a nasal spray aimed at clearing the brain of the amyloid proteins responsible for forming the characteristic plaques that impair memory and cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer's disease. With promising results in the lab, Drs. Howard Weiner and Dennis Selkoe are now working with pharmaceutical companies in Canada and the Netherlands to manufacture a protollin-based nasal vaccine and move it forward toward clinical trials. ‪#‎50MillionFaces‬

For years, investigators have been looking into the role of alpha-synuclein (αSyn) in Parkinson's disease and its potential as a target for therapy. The research team at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases is screening for drugs that stabilize the aggregated form of αSyn with the hopes that this could prevent movement impairments and other symptoms experienced by those affected with Parkinson's disease. ‪#‎50MillionFaces‬

They need to work on sexual harassment training. Hospital Security Very unprofessional. I am very well behaved and attractive heterosexual male. They were harassing me by attempting to intimidate me: staring at me, positioning themselves in my line of sight, walking too close to me, etc... ER Several times now, male employees (Techs, Nurses, etc...) have abused their power and been very rude to me, including attempting to bully me to impress female staff members. Not a very welcoming place if the males feel that the females find you sexually attractive. THIS IS SEXUAL HARASSMENT.

My father was brought to Brigham and Women's after a low speed motorcycle accident. Due to a brain bleed. Unfortunately after the initial care we felt almost forgot. Several times he was suppose to have diagnostic testing which was pushed back DAYS because of other emergencies. No one kept you appraised of delays. My family wanted to speak with a doctor, as we hadn't seen one in 3 days and a resident was sent down who was unable to answer any questions.

I have experience male on male sexual harassment at BWH. Males can abuse their power to harass and attempt to emasculate other males to make that male unattractive to women.

I was admitted after a a stroke. This is the noisiest hospital. I don't think I got any sleep for the entire week I was there. I was woken up repeatedly to someone screaming in my face. "Suzy, blink if you can hear me." Since my name is not Suzy, I finally got it together to scream that back at her, and she said, "Oh I made that mistake before." Then why doesn't she check the name on the bracelet, or the name above the bed before she screams at patients and wakes them up? Meanwhile, I was extremely concerned to let my daughter and relatives know that I was there, as well as my employer and students who were waiting for me. They kept insisting that everyone had been contacted and no one was worried about me or wondering where I was. Only days later did I find out that my daughter, who is from out of state, was desperately searching for me, and six people including my daughter, cousin and employer had all called in wellness checks on me to the local police dept. B&W had insisted that this was all covered and they clearly didn't do anything to reach my family or employer. They even told my cousin, she was going to have to try calling the other Boston hospitals. I esent enormously that it put a lot of people through hell when I was trying as hard as I could, as a patient with a stroke, to reach them. Then, last week, they sent me someone else's pocketbook stuffed with ID's, including medical ID's, bills and cash. I feel terrible for this person, who must be worried about her things. They sent me a shipping label to return it to them, and now UPS expects me to give them a check on pickup. I've had a stroke. B&W is an excellent hospital. but they're exhausting and unprofessional to deal with.

My care through a hip surgery was excellent from beginning to end. I went from a VAMC clinic in another state, to B&WH, for evaluation, then due to red tape, much later to have pre op, then finally surgery & post op, & every single bit of it was excellent. I fact, I am considering moving to Boston, because of my care there. I am a polytrauma veteran, with many physical limitations & financial constraints, so a move for me is a very difficult process, & there are many obstacles, but I will do it if I can because my care was so excellent.

Can't say enough good things about this hospital. My wife saw her doctor due to some bleeding. This was followed by a biopsy and then a total hysterectomy. Everyone was very nice, efficient, and caring. She recovered from the operation much quicker than she could imagine. At the same time my brother-in-law collapsed while driving and after tests at his local hospital was rushed in to the Brigham for a heart bypass. He and his family praised everyone at the hospital and I can personally say that his room was the quietest, most spacious and comfortable hospital room I've seen.

I cannot believe the complaining people do--seriously, do you think you would do better at home on your own? No. My experience with BWH is very good, and I think the problem is people expect far too much. Hospitals do the best they can, and you can blame, politicians, lawyers, etc. for the troubles most of them experience. I must say, I found the 1-star post about the horrible labor and delivery and end of sex life at 29 hilarious!! I can only assume it was a joke.
