March 6, 2003 (Lexington, Ky.) -- Greg Gerhardt has been eavesdropping on conversations most thought might never be heard — he is listening in on the brain. The public will soon be able to listen in on his innovative sensor technology research in an exhibit at the Louisville Science Center.

Gerhardt, Ph.D., professor, Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology and Department of Neurology, UK College of Medicine, and director of the Morris K. Udall Parkinson's Disease Research Center of Excellence and the Center for Sensor Technology at UK, will be featured in a new addition to the Breakthrough Gallery, part of the Louisville Science Center’s permanent exhibit, The World Within Us, which opened in March 2001.

The new addition, showcasing Gerhardt’s research will officially open March 17, and will be up for two years.

Gerhardt has developed sensor technology to understand the brain in its normal state and to design new strategies for treating disorders such as Parkinson’s disease.

The Breakthrough Gallery showcases careers in health and life sciences via video presentations, graphic panels, and artifacts related to current regional medical research. The exhibit is updated every two years and is underwritten by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
