Richard Johnson MD died on Sunday, November 22, 2015
Dr. Johnson, 84, was the founding MedLink Neurology Senior Associate Editor for Infectious Diseases and a prominent academic leader.

"Dick Johnson was not only an intellectual giant and a world leader in Neurology, but also an extraordinarily kind and empathetic individual. I will always cherish the times we spent together during my visits to Hopkins, including the time when he desperately tried to find a restaurant that carried crab cakes, even during peak season. He will be missed by so many from and outside of the world of Neurology," states Joseph Jankovic MD, MedLink Neurology Senior Associate Editor for Movement Disorders.

Selected News

Research points to enhanced detection of Parkinson’s
By mapping the visual responses of fruit flies with different Parkinson genes, biologists at the University of York have built a substantial data bank of results, with which they were able to classify unknown flies as having a Parkinson-related mutation with 85% accuracy. The findings could lead to improved methods of detection for early-onset Parkinson disease.
Immune-disorder treatment in mice holds potential for multiple sclerosis patients
An infusion of spleen cells coupled with an autoantigen completely prevented experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in a mouse model, and the same method also "dramatically reversed" the disease in its early stages, researchers found. The findings were published recently in the Journal of Immunology Research.
High-fat diet prompts immune cells to start eating connections between neurons
When a high-fat diet causes us to become obese, it also appears to prompt normally bustling microglia in the brain to become sedentary and start consuming synapses, reports a study in the journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity.
