260 attendees from the local Parkinson’s community, medical professionals and university researchers enjoyed the pre-lecture reception and then listened to an excellent talk where Prof Lozano described the good long-term therapeutic results that can be achieved with deep brain stimulation and the prospects for a new non-surgical approach using focused ultrasound. The evening ended with a presentation to Ken Bowler in recognition of his achievement in establishing the Edinburgh Parkinson’s Lecture and making it such an important annual event for the Parkinson’s community in Scotland.
