Dr Yen Tai is a consultant neurologist and honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer with special interests in the study and treatment of movement disorders. He has a research background in using functional imaging to study the pathogenesis and treatment responses of neuroprotective therapy in neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases. More recently, he is also interested in using technology and neuromodulation, including deep brain stimulation, to improve the treatment of movement disorders.
