BNPA Annual meeting 2019

7 - 8 March 2019 - Kings Place, York Way, London

The 32nd Annual General Meeting of the BNPA will take place on 7th and 8th March 2018. We are delighted to be able to reveal a few of the treats lined up for our next Annual Conference, an event that has shaped our understanding of the human brain – neuropsychiatry has emerged as one of the most exciting and challenging fields in which to work. 7th-8th March 2019 may still seem a long way off, but we encourage you to pencil the dates in your diary, read up about our fabulous speakers and start thinking about abstracts for the prestigious BNPA members’ papers and poster sessions.

As ever, our conference programme will address issues at the core of clinical practice in Neuropsychiatry and Behavioural Neurology, and showcase cutting edge research from around the world. The main symposia this year will focus on epilepsy, functional neurological disorders and global neuropsychiatry.

Our confirmed speakers include Mike Kerr (epilepsy and intellectual disability); Alasdair Coles (religious experience and epilepsy); Jessica Eccles (hypermobility/POTs); Ingrid Hoeritzauer (functional urological symptoms); Dinesh Bhugra (neuropsychiatry in ethnic minority groups); Emily Holmes (treatment of PTSD amongst refugees, Facundo Manes (the huge burden of dementia in low and middle income countries) and Martha Farah (wealth, poverty and the brain).

The Guest Lecture will be delivered by Ed Bullmore (depression and brain inflammation) and the BNPA medal will be awarded to Karalyn Patterson (Cambridge) for her outstanding work on language disorders, especially semantic dementia. There will of course also be the excellent clinical research updates targeting key issues for everyday practice, and our conference will culminate in a highly-charged debate on the merits or otherwise of cognitive enhancement.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to the 2019 BNPA conference.
