This Roger Bannister Lecture celebrates the medical achievements of one of the great neurologists and seeks to mark and promote advances in the study of the autonomic nervous system (ANS).

Join us to explore our understanding of the autonomic nervous system and how our understanding of this essential part of the nervous system continues to evolve by looking at common conditions including that much-debated disorder of Postural Tachycardia Syndrome.

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. 

During this session, participants will be able to:

  • Be aware of the disorders of the ANS in neurological clinical practice
  • Understand the challenge of diagnosing and treating POTS
  • Gain an indication of active research areas in autonomic system disease

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.
