Math model focuses on brain circuitry for Parkinson's R&D

A new mathematical model of the brain's complex neural circuitry cold help researchers figure out some of the essentials about how the transmission of information misfires in Parkinson's patients. "All this knowledge is critical to the eventual development of therapies to correct defective transmissions found in the brains of those with Parkinson's disease," says Leonid Rubchinsky, who is affiliated with the Center for Mathematical Modeling and Computational Sciences in the School of Science at IUPUI.
