Webinar with Brian D. Berman, M.D., M.S., F.A.A.N – Beneath the Surface: Non-Motor Symptoms in Cervical Dystonia

14 Mar
Brian Berman, MD, MS, Neurology

Dr. Brian Berman is no stranger to the NSTA. He has supported the NSTA in many ways including presenting on “Neuroimaging in Spasmodic Torticollis” at the 2013 NSTA Symposium in Atlanta, Georgia.

On Saturday, March 26th at 10:00 AM Pacific Time, Dr. Berman is our guest speaker for the next NSTA webinar. His topic is entitled, “Beneath the Surface: Non-Motor Symptoms in Cervical Dystonia” After his presentation, he will take part in a Questions and Answers session where participants can ask him questions directly.

Brian D. Berman, M.D., M.S., F.A.A.N. is Professor of Neurology and Bemiss Endowed Chair at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) as well as director of the VCU Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Center. Dr. Berman completed his neurology residency training at the University of California at San Francisco and his fellowship training in movement disorders at the National Institutes of Health under the tutelage of Dr. Mark Hallett. After fellowship, he joined the neurology faculty at the University of Colorado Denver where he established a national reputation in movement disorders and applied advanced neuroimaging methods to advance our understanding of the disordered brain processes underlying dystonia and Parkinson disease. After 10 years at the University of Colorado he relocated to VCU to expand his impact on the field and direct a movement disorders center. Dr. Berman has served on the medical advisory board for the National Spasmodic Torticollis Association since 2013 and the Benign Essential Blepharospasm Research Foundation since 2014. His current research pursuits in dystonia include investigating the role that loss of inhibition plays in the disorder and assisting with the development of patient-centered outcome measures to help inform the development of new treatments for dystonia. Dr. Berman further has longstanding clinical and research interests in the non-motor symptoms associated with dystonia.
