The latest in our NeuroVoices series, dedicated to conversations with leaders in the neurology community, will go live this Wednesday, February 24. This time, it features a discussion with Cleveland Clinic's Stephen Rao, PhD, and Jay Alberts, PhD. The duo stopped by to discuss a 5-year study they will lead that evaluated the impact high-intensity exercise has in preventing Alzheimer disease. Funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health, the trial represents the first study to explore if this exercise intervention program can alter the progression of the disease in sedentary, high-risk individuals.

Grover spoke to the recently published results of a study he and colleagues conducted on the impacts of neuromodulation on obsessive-compulsive behaviors and its potential to treat these in patients with movement disorders.
