Aging Well With Parkinson’s: What You Need to Know


About our speaker:

John Walsh is an Associate Professor of Gerontology and a member of the Neuroscience Program at USC. He received his undergraduate degree in biology from UC Irvine and was awarded a PhD in physiology and biomedical sciences from the University of Texas School of Medicine in Houston. Walsh’s research focuses on the electrophysiological analysis of brain areas that are targets of age-related disease. Studies on aging, calcium, and free radical physiology are performed in Dr. Walsh’s laboratory as they relate to changes in synaptic plasticity and cell behavior. His research also examines how toxic environmental challenges affect nerve cell populations typically lost in Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
