About the Episode

Generally we move our bodies pretty automatically and quickly, thanks to myelin, insulation which coats some of our nerve cells. Though one autoimmune disease – Multiple Sclerosis (MS) – attacks this insulation, impacting patients’ motor and sensory functions. Researching brain development and the disease itself can help develop better treatments for MS patients in the future.
