Students and trainees in neurosciences, including neurology, neurosurgery, neurophysiology, neuropathology or neuroradiology.
Applicants are invited to submit no more than 500 word summaries of research which they have carried out. Those considered to be the best will be asked to give a 10 minute presentation (including 3 minutes discussion) at a meeting of the Section. Factors which will be taken into account in the assessment of the research will include the originality, the degree to which the research was carried by the presenter, the difficulty of the work and the extent to which it throws new light and understanding on any aspect of the aetiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, investigation, treatment or management of patients, and the importance and relevance in clinical practice, as well as the clarity of presentation.
