New podcast describes the significance and impact of highly cited paper
5 October 2009
A podcast by Institute Director Professor Alan Thompson features in the latest edition of Science Watch, the information service from Thompson Reuters which tracks trends and performance in basic research. In the podcast Professor Thompson discusses the significance of one of most highly cited* papers in the field of neuroscience & behaviour, which he co-authored in 2001.
The paper; Recommended diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: Guidelines from the International Panel on the Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis was published in 2001, has been cited more than 1,700 times to date, and describes what is now widely known as the McDonald Criteria. This is an extensively used diagnostic criteria and is named after the late Professor Ian McDonald, 1st author and also chair of this highly influential International panel of senior investigators in MS.
The paper outlines the invaluable role of MRI in providing evidence in establishing and simplifying the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.
