The Gordon Holmes Prize is an important meeting point for both established and young researchers in neuroscience to get updates on new research areas as well as get a chance to interact and shape the future.

In the first session of this event, we will be showcasing poster and in-person presentations from young neuroscience researchers submitted for the Gordon Holmes Prize. This is an opportunity to hear what work is being done by young colleagues and for them to highlight important new directions in neuroscience.

The second session will be a lecture from a world authority on new trends in epilepsy, Professor Fabrice Bartolomei. Professor Bartolomei is one of the world’s leading experts on brain networks in epilepsy and will be discussing the exciting new options this approach offers in the treatment of medication-resistant focal seizures.

Learning objectives include:

  • An update on new research areas
  • An improved understanding of new concepts in epilepsy
  • An update on the role of intracranial recording in the investigation of imaging-negative epilepsy

This live stream is available for on-demand viewing. The live stream recording will be available for registered delegates up to 60 days after the live broadcast via Zoom.
