Research Forum June 2021 – Light Therapy in Parkinson’s
Thursday, 17th June 2021

Sleep issues including reduced sleep efficiency and excessive daytime sleepiness are common symptoms for people living with Parkinson’s.

Join our June Virtual Research Forum to hear Beatrix Karoline Feigl, MD, PhD, from the Queensland University of Technology present on  Photoreceptor-directed Light Therapy in Parkinson’s Disease. While studies using different methodologies of bright light delivery have shown beneficial effects of light on sleep and motor behaviour, the pathomechanisms as to why light is effective are not known.

The aim of this research is to demonstrate the positive effect of melanopsin-directed lighting on non-motor (sleep and circadian) and motor (gait, balance, tremor) symptoms.
