This event will update participants on current clinical and basic research in a variety of disorders at the interface of neurology and psychiatry. A multitude of disorders will be covered and discussed by leading figures in neurology, neuroscience, psychiatry, neuropsychology and neurosurgery.
This is an exciting opportunity for all participants interested in neurology and psychiatry to update their knowledge in the latest findings applicable to patients they may be seeing who are presenting with these problems.
The basic research lectures, particularly the neuroscience of space and time lectures, will prove fascinating as well.
