Dr. Young, a registered patent attorney, deals with a variety of technologies, including medical devices, biotechnology, electrical processes and systems, computer hardware and software, chemicals and related processes, and mechanical devices.

He has been involved in both basic science and clinical research, such as vivo extracellular neuronal recording on eye movement in awake monkeys, including surgical preparation of animal subjects; transcranial magnetic stimulation on patients with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease); clinical electromyography (EMG) on patients with neuromuscular diseases of various types, among others. Dr. Young’s clinical and research interests have included EMG; neurorehabilitation, including stroke; motor control; Alzheimer’s disease; Parkinson’s disease; multiple sclerosis; and migraine.

Dr. Young earned a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree from Boston University’s top ranked Biomedical Engineering program. He received his medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine in 1991 receiving honors in neurology, and completed internship, neurology residency and fellowships that included being a teaching fellow and researcher at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Harvard Medical School.
