The yips has been described as a wiring problem in the brain. But what is a wiring problem in the brain? It may be dystonia, a neurological movement disorder that causes involuntary muscle spasms or jerks, and on this episode of Losing Control, host Justin Su’a talks with Dr. Steven Frucht, a neurologist who has been treating people who suffer from movement disorders for decades. And for a broader exploration of how we move, you’ll also meet two neuroscientists whose cutting edge work focuses on the neural control of movement, or how the brain controls the body: Dr. Alaa Ahmed and Dr. Lena Ting.  

  • Dr. Alaa Ahmed, professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder
  • Dr. Steven Frucht, a neurologist and movement disorder clinician at NYU Langone Health
  • Dr. Lena Ting, professor at Emory University and Georgia Tech
  • Aaron, a musician who suffers from dystonia
