Webinar Overview

Learn how noninvasive preclinical neuroimaging, locomotor activity, and behavioral testing in animal models can effectively track the phenotypic changes of disease progression that also appear in human patients. Using an animal model of Batten disease, our experts will discuss the correlations between animal model and human responses that could result in better translational research and new therapies for pediatric neurodegenerative disorders.
