Williamsburg Landing (WL) welcomed Kathryn L. Holloway MD, a nationally known Neurosurgeon & Professor, Dept. of Neurosurgery, VCU, to discuss her recent venture in dementia research. Dr. Holloway presented her extensive contributions in the area of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) to WL residents and their guests. Recent understanding of how the brain manages memory has led Dr. Holloway and other scientists to believe that damage to memory circuits may lead to dementia symptoms in Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Her extensive success with DBS in the treatment of movement disorders provides progress toward the possibility of adjusting or reversing the effects of dementia.
