Neurology in the Media

The New York Times interviews Richard Lipton, M.D., about research from the Einstein Aging Study (EAS) which found an association between perceived stress and dementia. As part of two separate EAS studies, participants were surveyed about perceived stress. For healthy participants, cognitive loss was associated with scoring highest for stress and anxiety over a four-year period while the risk of dementia was two-and-a-half times greater for participants who had amnestic mild cognitive impairment and the highest perceived stress. Dr. Lipton is director of the Einstein Aging Study and vice chair of the Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology at Einstein and director of the division of cognitive aging and dementia at Montefiore Medical Center. (Wednesday, Jul 16, 2014)

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)
