In the second episode of Long Live The Brains, Dr. Tipton interviews Wade Tipton (Dr. Tipton's father) about his encounter with Parkinson's disease (PD). Wade's father was diagnosed with PD when Wade was a child. During this interview, Wade discusses what it was like growing up with a dad who was battling Parkinson's at a time when we understood much less about it. In the discussion, we talk about genetic misconceptions of the time as well as a new blockbuster drug that was released in the 1960s called "L-dopa." Tune in to hear about these things and more on Long Live The Brains.
