In this Neuropsych Bite, we brought Joel Kamper, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, back on the podcast to discuss moyamoya, a rare condition that causes transient ischemic attacks and/or repeated strokes. The term “moyamoya” (“puff of smoke” in Japanese) refers to the smoke-like presentation on angiography. This is the second episode in a series on rare neurological disorders.
