Patients at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center know they will have access to tomorrow’s technology, today. Wake Forest’s membership in a consortium of 10 leading U.S. medical centers, called the New Approaches to Brain Tumor Therapy, allows access to promising new clinical trials. 

The Neurology department offers a variety of new and innovative research and clinical trials that focus on areas such as Parkinson's disease, Epilepsy, Stroke, Spasticity, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, and Huntington's disease

We are also conducting research with High-resolution, relational, resonance-based, electroencephalic mirroring (HIRREM®). This is a novel, noninvasive, closed-loop, electroencephalic-based feedback technology to facilitate relaxation, auto-calibration, and self-optimization of neural oscillations by using auditory tones to reflect dominant brain frequencies in near real time.

The ALS Research Group at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, led by researcher Carol Milligan, Ph.D., neurobiology and anatomy, is looking for ways to treat Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Her recent work, using “heat shock” proteins to help control muscle movement, showed that their use in mice delayed the onset of ALS symptoms and extended survival times.
