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.
This meeting is held over two days and features four semi-independent symposia on:
- Auto-antibody disease
- The neuroscience and psychiatry of space and time
The prestigious Sherrington Memorial Lecture will be given by Professor John O’Keefe, FRS, and Nobel Prize winner.
- Autoimmune encephalitis, presentations and management from Neurological, Psychiatric, and Neuropsychological perspectives
- The neuroscience of space and time, how the brain makes sense of experience and its relation to memories of events and places, as well as developmental aspects
- Epilepsy: the history of epilepsy in relation to neurology and psychiatry
- Dementia: Alzheimer’s, as well as Vascular, and Frontotemporal dementias including neuropsychology, pathophysiology and recommended management
- Research on biomarkers and novel treatments such as stem cells, as being investigated for Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases
