26 July, 2017 - “Cerebellar contributions to the instrumental control of behaviour”

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Professor Narender Ramnani - Department of Psychology, Royal Holloway University of London Abstract: The cerebellum is well-known for its contribution to the control of movement and is well known for its ability to store representations that contribute to the execution skilled movement. Its role in simple forms of motor learning (classically conditioned reflexes) is particularly well-understood through the study of cerebellar responses to conditioned stimuli. However, large areas of the cerebellar cortex are thought to be interconnected with areas of the prefrontal cortex and so may play a role in the execution of skilled cognitive operations. In this talk I will discuss a set of neuroimaging studies that explore the connectivity of the cortico-cerebellar system, and it’s activation by instrumentally acquired rules that govern actions. All welcome to attend

15 August, 2017 - Live-stream of TEDxNHS – inspired by people

Time: 13:45:00 - 18:00:00

UCLPartners is pleased to host a live-stream of the TEDxNHS event. The main event has been hugely popular and is sold out, so you are very welcome to join us for all or part of the livestream. We’ll be showing it live, as a drop-in event, for our colleagues and partners who are interested. This year, the theme is ‘Inspired by People‘; the event brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. The speakers (yet to be announced) are individuals with inspirational stories and aspirational ideas, who come together on a national stage to share their stories. Please register your interest in joining us via Eventbrite and we will keep you up to date with the details. For more information visit www.TEDxNHS.com or search #inspiredbypeople on Twitter. We look forward to seeing you on the day.

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

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

Depression is the major mental health problem in terms of burden of disease. After years of preparatory work a new set of NICE guidelines for major depression is about to be released. This new guidance is destined to affect many of our lives. 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. This conference is a unique opportunity to explore the implications of the new guidance both for all practitioners working in this area and for clinical services.

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.*
