Exciting things are in the works for our next Neuroscience to Neurology Conference! The event be held at Chancellors Building, Little France on Saturday the 18th of February 2017. There will be a variety of excellent talks from:

  • Dr Thomas Russ from The University of Edinburgh, whose research interests include the epidemiology of Dementia, looking at geographical variation in dementia, environmental risk factors, and the life course approach. He is the secretary of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Scotland philosophy and psychiatry special interest group and sits on the Working with Older People steering group at Human Development Scotland.
  • Professor Andrew Farrall from The University of Edinburgh, a neuroradiologist who is particularly interested in education about imaging. His research focuses on how imaging can be applied to the investigation of stroke, small vessel disease and the ageing process. He also investigates image analysis and how measurements of lesions is optimized.
  • Professor Tony Holland from The University of Cambridge, whose research focuses on learning disabilities. His projects have included studies into Downs Syndrome and the link between developing dementia, and Prader Willi Syndrome and associated eating disorder and risks of psychiatric illness.
  • Professor Janet Eyre from Newcastle Univeristy, whose research focuses on paediatric neuroscience. Her team’s research looks at the plasticity of the corticospinal system throughout life, and is part of the only group internationally able to undertake detailed neurophysiological studies of the development of the corticospinal control of the hand and upper limb across the life span. Professor Eyre is also founder of LimbsAlive.

And if that wasn’t enough, we’ll be holding some great workshops – more to come on these! It’s an event not to be missed!
