9 September, 2017 - New NICE Guidance for the Treatment of Depression: Implications and Evaluation Conference

Time: 09:30:00 - 17:30:00

This one-day conference will create a forum for a full discussion of the new guideline’s findings and recommendations and their implications. We will bring together national and international experts representing key approaches to depression, each of whom will comment on the new guidance and identify strengths as well as problematic areas. Experts by experience will also participate in all panels. The findings and discussions from the conference will be summarized and incorporated as part of the feedback to NICE as part of its routine consultation. The conference will create an opportunity for arguments to be heard and presented to NICE in an integrated manner. The draft guidance is now available and can be found here: https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/indevelopment/gid-cgwave0725/consultation/html-content For any additional enquiries, please contact events.psychoanalysis@ucl.ac.uk

13 September, 2017 - Janaina Mourao-Miranda Inaugural Lecture

Time: 17:00:00 - 18:00:00

Organised by UCL Computer Science

Mental Health through the lens of machine learning applied to neuroimaging In this talk, I will present some pioneering examples of how machine learning has been applied to improve diagnosis and prognosis of psychiatric disorders based on brain scans. I will also discuss how machine learning models can help us to map a brain-behavior mental health space which has the potential to improve psychiatric diagnostic classification and identify people at risk of developing mental health disorders.

21 September, 2017 - QSMS Centre Departmental Seminar: "Disease modification in multiple sclerosis has just become simpler”

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Dr Klaus Schmierer, Reader in Clinical Neurology & Consultant Neurologist, The Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University of London & The Royal London Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust Abstract: The common initial presentation of multiple sclerosis (MS) as a relapsing and remitting disease betrays the loss from onset of reserve capacity. Disease modifying treatment (DMT) as early as possible is therefore a valuable proposition, however which of the growing number of DMT options should be used? Whilst inspection of post mortem samples and its in vivo proxy MRI inform on outcome, recent clinical trials not only raised DMT options to new heights (and lows). They also facilitated a new understanding of MS immunology, the focus of DMT, and assessment of treatment response. Against this backdrop I will propose a shift in DMT that may both improve and simplify the management of people with MS.

22 September, 2017 - 2017 Annual Synaptopathies Symposium

Time: -

The symposium is funded by a Wellcome Trust Strategic Award entitled "Synaptopathies: genetics, biophysics and circuit mechanisms of paroxysmal neurological disorders". Epilepsy, migraine and related paroxysmal neurological disorders affect over 15% of the population, and account for an enormous burden to the individual and to society. Progress in managing these diseases is slow, with many patients failing to respond to available medication. Understanding the mechanisms will be an essential step not only towards improved diagnosis, but also towards the development of rational therapies. *This event is open to principal investigators, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students. A limited number of places will be made available to MSc students.*
