Neurology in the Media

The Washington Post interviews Solomon Moshé, M.D., about the case of a girl with a rare form of epilepsy that causes uncontrolled bouts of laughter. Dr. Moshe notes that these gelastic seizures aren’t sparked by happiness and can actually be quite scary for the patient. Dr. Moshé is director of the division of pediatric neurology and professor in The Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology and The Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience at Einstein as well as chief of pediatric neurology at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore. (Tuesday, Jun 24, 2014)

The Wall Street Journal highlights groundbreaking research by Steven Walkley, D.V.M., Ph.D., that has led to treatment options for the rare condition Niemann-Pick Type C. In a lengthy cover story covering at least six years of reporting, journalist Amy Marcus details the passion that drove Walkley to continue his research on the drug cyclodextrin – and explores how parents and scientists have joined forces to find more effective treatments.
