1: An Emerging Framework for Parkinson Disease Therapeutics

As part of NeurologyLive®'s December 2021 issue, our guest editor-in-chief Jeffrey Ratliff, MD, offers insight into the diagnosis of Parkinson disease, which may seem straightforward at first by requiring neurologists to rely on their eyes and hands. But the treatment process can present challenges for both physicians and patients.

Beagin, MD, Nathaniel Fletcher Watson, MD, Vikas Jain, MD, FAASM, FAAFP, CCSH, CPE, offer shared insight on how daytime functioning has become part of the insomnia treatment paradigm in episode 2 of the NeurologyLive® Peer Exchange™ series, "Unmet Needs in Treating Insomnia."

3: A Practical Approach to Chronic Immunosuppression in Myasthenia Gravis

Ericka Wong, MD, and Jessica Yi, MD, offer a practical approach to initiating and tapering corticosteroids, and the considerations in the selection and monitoring parameters of steroid-sparing agents are crucial to the care of myasthenia gravis.

4: NeuroVoices: Dejan Jakimovski, MD, PhD, on Identifying A Relationship Between Brain Structures and Cognitive Performance in MS

The research assistant professor in the department of neurology at the Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center spoke to a grant from the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) to study the relationship between brain structure and cognitive performance in elderly people with multiple sclerosis.
