A star science journalist with Parkinson's reveals the inner workings of this perplexing disease

Seven million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson's—with sixty thousand new cases diagnosed each year in the US alone—and it remains an enigma, with doctors, researchers and patients hunting for a cure. In Brain Storms, award-winning journalist Jon Palfreman tells their story, a story that takes on urgency when he is diagnosed with the debilitating illness.

Palfreman chronicles how scientists have laboured to crack the mystery of what was once called “the shaking palsy,” from the earliest clinical descriptions to the cutting edge of molecular neuroscience. He charts the victories and setbacks of a massive international effort to best the disease, referred to as one of the best windows into the brain itself.

Brain Storms is also a profoundly personal investigation into Palfreman’s own struggles and those of others living with Parkinson’s. From a professional ballet dancer who “tricks” her body to move freely again, to a “frozen” patient who cannot walk but astounds doctors when he is able to ride a bicycle, Palfreman shines a light on the varied and ingenious ways patients cope with having their bodies steadily taken away from them.

The race is on to discover a means to stop or reverse neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Brain Storms is the long-overdue, riveting detective story of that race, and a passionate, insightful account into the lives of those affected.
