DescriptionPaul Schroder graduated at the top of his class in electrical engineering, and then was diagnosed with Parkinson?s disease. After a decade of being on medication and growing increasingly debilitated, he decides that radical brain surgery is preferable to sitting on the couch like a vegetable for the rest of his life. While Paul lies awake on the operating table, doctors implant electrodes in his brain and a neurostimulation device underneath his collarbone. The results of this electrifying surgery are mysterious, miraculous and bittersweet. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch. Registration is encouraged. Walk-ins are welcome.
