The aim of this course is to inform clinicians about the phenotypic spectrum of genetic forms of parkinsonism, to provide clinical clues for the differential diagnosis, and to discuss when, and in what patients, a genetic test should be performed. The course will include plenary lectures, video case demonstrations, and a “bring your own patient” video session.
Despite that research on PSP and related disorders has recently improved at all levels – molecular, brain circuitry, epidemiological and clinical – there has not been a single MDS-sponsored meeting about this devastating disorder. This course is intended to fill this gap, combining an update of the current understanding of PSP and a basic teaching course for those entering into this field. The most active researchers in the field of PSP from Europe will be invited to share their current knowledge and to discuss future research with the audience.
This conference will explore the translation of recent breakthroughs in neuroscience into therapies for the more than twenty-five percent of Americans suffering from mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, depression, fear and anxiety disorders, autism, and other psychiatric disorders. A keynote lecture by The Honorable Patrick J, Kennedy will address strategies to simultaneously abolish the stigma surrounding mental illness in order to fully realize the potential of these new treatments to improve mental health.
Call for Abstracts for Poster/Hot Topic Talks, Travel Fellowship and Childcare Grant Applications. Deadline: September 15, 2014.
Speakers will present the latest cognitive neuroscience and experimental psychology research on typical and atypical development of learning and memory, emotion, and social behavior in early life; social, family, and nutritional factors that cause lasting changes to the brain; and intervention, education, and policy to improve outcomes for at-risk children.
The Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T) Clinical Research Conference focuses on research, diagnostics and treatment of A-T, a rare, neurodegenerative disease causing immunodeficiency and malignancies. National and international experts will present their latest findings and present their views on future directions. Ample time is reserved for constructive discussions during workshop sessions. Young investigators are invited to present their work in selected oral presentations and poster sessions. Best Presentation and Best Poster prizes will be presented to young scientists.
Early bird registration fee starts on November 15, 2013
