• Professor Simon Lewis - Neurologist Neurodegenerative Disease

As a neurologist, I lobby, research, listen and learn to improve the lives of people living with Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia. This website is devoted to helping those with a neurodegenerative disease sustain a quality of life and to gain trusted knowledge about their condition.

As a researcher, my program is intentionally broad but highly integrated and directed towards improving the lives of people living with neurodegenerative brain diseases.  I have previously utilised a range of novel techniques including neuroimaging (brain scanning), neurophysiology (e.g. recording brain waves), neuropathology (I head the NSW Movement Disorders Brain Donor Program), chronobiology (e.g. measuring melatonin), neurogenetics and other peripheral biomarkers from blood tests.  Check out the videos on this website to learn more.
