10 June, 2015 - Division of Psychiatry seminar: Hearing loss: a new reversible causal factor for dementia?

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

Recent cohort studies have shown that hearing loss in middle age is a risk factor for accelerated cognitive decline and dementia in later life. Hearing loss is very prevalent, potentially preventable and treatable, and if it can be confirmed as a causative factor the benefits of addressing hearing loss could lead to substantial benefits in reduced dementia incidence. In this talk I will present the evidence linking hearing loss and dementia, discuss possible mechanistic pathways and confounding factors of the association, and reflect on research that could clarify this link. Speaker: Dr Sergi Costafreda. Host: Prof Gill Livingston, Division of Psychiatry.

24 June, 2015 - Division of Psychiatry seminar: The development and genetics of Wernicke's Encephalopathy, with focus on alcohol misuse

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

Wernicke’s encephalopathy (WE) is the acute phase of a potentially fatal neuropsychiatric condition caused by an inadequate supply of vitamin B1 to the brain and is often associated with alcohol misuse. In the early stages, WE is reversible but if the condition is undiagnosed or inadequately treated, it will progress to irreversible brain damage, the Korsakoff Syndrome (KS). Korsakoff described a group of patients who had an abnormal mental state in which memory and learning were affected out of all proportion to other cognitive functions in an otherwise alert and responsive patient. Important differences between WE due to dietary deficiency from that associated with alcohol misuse will be discussed. Our current research has centred on the genes controlling the transport systems responsible for the transport of vit B1 and other nutrients into the brain cells. Speakers: Dr Allan D. Thomson and Dr Irene Guerrini Hosted by: Dr Nick Bass

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.

4 September, 2015 - Minds of Caste - An inter-disciplinary seminar on how Caste identities shape the Mind

Time: 17:30:00 - 20:00:00

This unique inter-disciplinary seminar will address some of the following questions: How does caste shape individual minds and determine collective mentalities? Why and how does caste discrimination impact upon the inner lives of both the perpetrators and their victims? Is caste practice normative or a pathological denial and threat to hierarchy and status? What might be the cultural and psychological pathologies of the perpetrators of casteism? What is the nature of the stigma and disclosure of caste identity? How is caste identity psychologically managed both individually and collectively? How is caste merit constructed and perpetuated? Is caste essential to Indian cultural identity? Does conversion help? To what extent do casteism and racism overlap or differ in their psychological antecedents and consequences? Can anti-racist interventions in the clinic (what is generally known as inter-cultural therapy) be applicable to the Indian context? For whom?
