Atypical parkinsonian syndromes are a group of hypokinetic neurodegenerative diseases other than Parkinson's disease. Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD), Multiple System Atrophy (MSA)
and Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) are the most prominent representatives of this group.
Movement Disorder specialists require specific expertise and skills for adequate medical care for patients with atypical parkinsonian syndromes. International research efforts make atypical parkinsonian syndromes particularly attractive for young neurologists.
This course is designed to provide young neurologists and future experts in Movement Disorders the essential knowledge and skills required for qualified medical care and high end research in atypical parkinsonian syndromes.
Participants will attend lectures presenting the different disease entities, followed by clinical skills lectures focusing on the clinical identification specific signs and symptoms.
Participants will then have the opportunity to examine individual patients with atypical parkinsonian syndromes. There will be plenty of opportunities to engage in a constructive discussions with the international experts. Attendees are also encouraged to bring own case-study videos and discuss them with faculty.
If some Romanian collegues would like to receive weekly notices about the rounds, along with the link to register and connect (as in the attached), they should contact my administrative support secretary Sandy Penwarden at with a copy to me () and provide a contact name and email address, and we will add them to our distribution list.
There is no cost to register and participate in the rounds. The goal is to share knowledge in behavioural neurology across The World
We kindly invite you to participate in the 1st International Conference on Neuroscience, Neuroinformatics, Neurotechnology and Neuro-Psycho-Pharmacology organized by the Romanian Academy - Romanian Group for Brain Research, Romanian Society of Neurology, the Foundation of the Romanian Society of Neurology, the National Neuroscience Society of Romania and the Romanian Society for Automation and Technical Informatics. The aim of the conference is to bring together experts from various areas of brain science, neuroscience, clinical neurology, psychology, pharmacology with engineers in systems science, neuroinformatics, computer science and technology in order to debate aspects of the brain and mind, to identify efficient theories, models and tools that will contribute to a better understanding of the brain and its functioning. The conference will be organized in Bucharest on 15-17 November 2018.
The opening ceremony and the invited papers will be presented in the main Hall of the Romanian Academy.
