About this event

  • Date and time Tue 19 Jul 2022 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Clinical Neurosciences

Join us to explore our current understanding of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and how we can continue to learn by researching common conditions, such as Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS).

Throughout this lecture we will celebrate the medical achievements of the great neurologist, Sir Roger Bannister, and mark advances in the study of the ANS.

Mens sana in corpore sano (a healthy mind in a healthy body) is what we all aspire to and it is the autonomic nervous system that links the mind to the body and the body to the mind. Sir Roger Bannister applied this motto throughout his career, and this annual lecture highlights the importance of his work and its contemporary applications. 

Attendees will gain an insight into:

  • Disorders of the ANS in neurological clinical practice
  • The challenge of diagnosing and treating PoTS
  • Active research areas in ANS disease
