Smell & Your Brain Survey | The Michael J. Fox Foundation

Smell & Your Brain Survey | The Michael J. Fox Foundation | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

Share This Infographic: Smell and Your Brain


Only half of U.S. adults are aware that reduced sense of smell can be a precursor to brain disease. Smell loss is a common but little noticed symptom of Parkinson's disease (PD) that may occur years before the onset of motor symptoms or a diagnosis. We’ve developed this infographic to help explain the connection between smell and brain health.

 

The Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) needs 10,000 people over 60 who do not have Parkinson's to take a simple smell survey online. Share this infographic on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to help spread the word. 

 

Take the Survey Now!
