Sanghee Moon, a LARRS graduate research assistant, presented his work titled "Increased Mental Effort During Abstract Reasoning in Parkinson’s Disease: A Pilot Study" at the Pan-American Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Congress, June 2018 in Miami, Fla.

At the MS Walk 2018, the LARRS members increased public awareness of the importance of MS research and had a demo using a head-mounted eye tracking device. Lab members also supported the event by actively participating in the walk with other people with multiple sclerosis.
