Mitigating these disparities will and inclusion.1 That activity led to a workshop series in likely require intentional efforts across the neuroscience the spring of 2023 titled Addressing Health Disparities research community to promote equitable practices and in Central Nervous System Disorders,2 which reviewed include individuals with lived/living experience and the current knowledge regarding health disparities in historically underrepresented communities as participants CNS disorders, explored the impact of psychosocial and and researchers.

Posey Norris presented the overarching reaches a point where race and ethnicity are no longer goal of the workshop, which was to explore how the needed, Riley said, understanding and using the correct basic neuroscience research community could improve terminology specifically and accurately will be essential neurobiological understanding of CNS disorders and to describing people in scientific literature and prevent treatments by using a health equity lens. Discussions misinterpretation of biological data.

... trials, if there was some objective versus African, has a rather substantial effect on what measure of vascular integrity, imagine a world where genes are turned on or what genes are turned off in the everyone was simply screened for that measure," she brain." Weinberger explained that his research predicts said, "no matter what your ancestry is, if you don't have the quantitative change in gene activation based on good vascular integrity, you're in one bucket, and if you the proportion of European and African ancestry and have good vascular integrity, you're in another bucket investigates how that might impact disease prevalence. regardless of what your ancestry is." Having objective In a disease-specific example, he explained that measures would promote more inclusive practices for Parkinson's disease may be less common among people the clinical trial recruitment of people from various of African ancestry because of the number of genes that ancestries in neurological research, she concluded.
