Date: Thursday, June 13, 2017

Time: 11 am PT | 12 pm MT | 1 pm CT | 2 pm ET

Speaker: Stefan Clemens, PhD
Dr. Clemens is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physiology at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. His research focuses on investigating the neural networks in the spinal cord, especially their role in neurological disorders, like RLS. This webinar will discuss the dopaminergic pathway and its impact on restless legs syndrome. Dopaminergic pathways are the sets of projection neurons in the brain that synthesize and release the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dr.Clemens will provide background on the mechanism of the dopamine system, current research findings and trends, and how these findings impact those suffering with RLS. Dr. Clemens will spend the first half of the hour covering this topic. The second half of the hour is reserved for answering questions on this topic submitted with pre-registration. This webinar will be recorded and made available shortly after the live presentation.
