Genes & Your Health Edition: Neurodegenerative Brain Disease

Guest: Bradley F. Boeve, M.D.

Host: Denise M. Dupras, M.D., Ph.D.

Family history is so important in deciphering genetic causes for neurodegenerative disorders. As we study polygenetic situations, we are learning that often it is not just one gene, but the contribution of multiple genes that lead to the presentation of a patient with cognitive or brain function deterioration that occurs at a variable rate. In this episode, we discuss genes and neurodegenerative brain disease, and our guest is Bradley F. Boeve, M.D., a consultant in the Department of Neurology and the Center for Sleep Medicine, as well as a professor of neurology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
