19 March, 2015 - Where we are now: Psychoanalytic research in the 21st century

Time: 12:00:00 - 17:00:00

This new exhibition explores how psychoanalytic ideas are currently used in research which engages with very contemporary issues and the challenges of the modern world. The pieces are by six young artists from the Slade School of Fine Art, who have been commissioned to produce work that contests misconceptions and clichés about psychoanalytic research, and emphasises the discipline’s relevance to twenty-first century life. Their work is inspired by research carried out at the UCL Psychoanalysis Unit, which investigates topics ranging from tattooing to technology, the arts, the economy and, of course, mental and physical health. OPENING HOURS: Wednesday - Sunday 12.00 - 17.00

Time: 13:00:00 - 16:00:00

The NCN committee will be running a Grant Writing Workshop on Friday April 24th, 1 - 4pm.

It will be led by two senior UCL researchers, Prof. John Wood and Prof. David McAlpine, who have extensive experience of applying for funding and of sitting on the committees that decide which science gets funded. This is a rare opportunity to improve your 'grantsmanship' skills, gain insight into how funding committees work and to receive constructive feedback on your applications. To participate in this workshop, each participant must provide an abstract, lay summary and full scientific proposal (it may be a preliminary application) for either a grant or fellowship application by April 7th 2015. Costings are NOT required.

Time: -

During this meeting we will revisit the controversies and areas of consensus identified in a goal-setting meeting held in 2009 (results published in Clinical Rehabilitation 2009;23(4):334-44). We will hear from experts in the field, including Richard Siegert and William Levack, authors of the recently published book, ‘Rehabilitation Goal Setting: Theory, Practice and Evidence’ , and identify how far we have progressed and what is yet to be done. Before the meeting starts, participants will be asked to complete the first round of the Delphi and to complete it twice more during the course of the meeting. This meeting provides an excellent opportunity to update on current thinking, to consider your own experience in the context of the theory, and to gain a sense of future direction. CPD points will be applied for.

24 June, 2015 - NeuroTrials Day

Time: -

In most areas of medicine it is the results from randomised controlled trials that ultimately decide whether or not a potential treatment has a place in the management of a clinical condition. Brain science is no different. Advances in the treatment of conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke and epilepsy have ultimately been determined by successful clinical trials. This NeuroTrials day will describe the design and implementation of all phases of trial. Uniquely, it will be from the twin viewpoints of clinicians and statisticians involved in designing and carrying out clinical trials. As such it will be appropriate for clinicians (e.g. neurologists and neurosurgeons), and other health professional in both the public and private sectors, at all levels of seniority. The roles of the clinical research network, clinical research facility and clinical trials unit will also be discussed.
