Our panelists will be joining us via Zoom from London and they will share with us their recent findings on hallucinations and dementia pertaining to Parkinson’s disease. They will define for us exactly what hallucinations and dementia might be and what we should look for. We will also discuss the origins of these symptoms and treatment options, along with other valuable resources.

Dr. Angelika Zarkali, PhD, is a neurologist working on neurodegenerative diseases and an Alzheimer’s Research UK Clinical Research Fellow in the Dementia Research Center at University College London (UCL). She is interested in the aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease dementia and Dementia with Lewy Bodies. Her research aims to shed light on the neural correlates of visual hallucinations and cognitive fluctuations in Parkinson’s disease and Dementia with Lewy Bodies. She is currently studying how changes in brain circuits lead to hallucinations and cognitive fluctuations using ultra-high field MRI.
