I Ask This Of You!

I have Parkinson's diseases and thought it would be nice to have a place where the contents of updated news is found in one place. That is why I began this blog.

I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible.

I am not responsible for it's contents. I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish.

This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.

Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns.

Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. I will not accept any information about Herbal treatments curing Parkinson's, dementia and etc. It will go into Spam.

This is a free site for all with no advertisements.

Thank you for visiting!

 — Samantha Buldo of Dingmans Ferry recently presented research she co-authored, “Valence Effect on ROM in Parkinson’s and the Neurotypical.”

The study at Misericordia University's Department of Speech-Language Therapy used motion capture technology to examine whether positive and negative words impacted range of motion of the lips and mandible in Parkinson’s patients.

Hunter Manasco, Ph.D., C.C.C.-S.L.P., associate professor of speech-language pathology, served as faculty advisor. Cecelia Cronin of Tunkhannock was co-author of the paper. Buldo and Cronin are graduate students.

Their presentation was given at the annual Student Research Day in Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall at Misericordia. The poster presentations were the culmination of research and work by more than 200 student researchers in the College of Health Sciences and Education and the College of Arts and Sciences. 

The students presented 103 abstracts to the college community and answered questions related to their individual topics, which included biology, chemistry, history, medical imaging, nursing, physical therapy, physics, psychology, and speech-language pathology. University President Thomas J. Botzman, Ph.D., attended the two-hour event along with students, faculty, staff and deans of the colleges.
