Manny’s: Addressing Parkinson’s Disease: Current & Future Mechanisms
August 16, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
More than 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s Disease.
What can be done to help those who are living with this disease?
Join us at Manny’s as Professor Olaru discusses deep brain stimulation that may serve as a potential therapy mechanism for those who may have Parkinson’s Disease.

About Maria Olaru:
Maria Olaru is a PhD candidate at UC San Francisco, where she studies the basal-ganglia cortico-thalamic circuit of patients with Parkinson’s Disease in Dr. Philip Starr’s lab. Her research interests include investigating electrophysiological neural markers for motor states with neural and wearable sensors, developing BCI feedback algorithms that optimize gamma entrainment throughout the stimulation frequency-amplitude parameter space, and modeling these experimental phenomena.
In her spare time, she enjoys experimenting with NYT cooking recipes, long-distance running, and the occasional outdoor climbing adventure. Throughout her academic career, she’s also developed a deep appreciation for comprehensive documentation and complete sentences.
