This is the second part of a two-part webinar series that expand your understanding of the normal brain development as a window and to understand what happens when things go wrong.

During this session, you'll be able to:

  • Understand developmental 'red flags'
  • Develop an insight into common neurological conditions that present in childhood, including movement disorders and childhood epilepsy
  • Explore how cutting-edge neuroimaging techniques allow us to describe normal structural brain development
