This year the President's address and Hughlings lecture will cover two insightful clinical neurosciences areas - the conceptual history of entrapment neuropathies, and the emergence of genetic treatments for neurological diseases. 

The 2021-2022 Clinical Neurosciences President's address, given by Dr Alistair Purves, Consultant Clinical Neurophysiologist, Kings College Hospital, UK, will look at the conceptual history of entrapment neuropathies and ask if this is a useful concept anymore? Dr Purves will discuss that many neurological symptoms are explained in clinical practice by the mechanism of compression or entrapment. 

The Hughlings lecture, given by Professor Mary Reilly, Consultant Neurologist, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, UK, will look at the exciting possibilities opened up by genetic discoveries and their application to neurological therapies and disease, and what this means for neurology.
