Neurology Update Meeting 2022 Report
The 21st Annual Neurology Update Meeting, under the presidency of Dr. Eavan McGovern, took place on Friday, October 7th at the Hyatt Centric Hotel, the Liberties, Dublin.
Dr. McGovern opened the meeting, welcoming guests, delegates and sponsors to the 21st meeting.
She announced that the ‘founding father’ of the meeting, Prof. Norman Delanty, who had first proposed the establishment of a Neurology Update Meeting, would deliver the first presentation of the 21st meeting.
Dr. McGovern noted the progress in understanding and treatment options for neurological conditions, which had been achieved in the period since the inaugural Neurology Update Meeting. One example of this being the presentation made at the first meeting in 2002 by Prof. Tim Counihan about a new surgery for Parkinson’s Disease, to the lecture to be delivered by Ms. Catherine Moran of the availability of this surgery in Ireland, currently.
Dr. McGovern outlined the programme for the day, which was divided into five sessions, addressing major disease areas and topics in neurology. The meeting session titles were Epilepsy, Peripheral Nerve Disease, Neurotechnology, Movement and Multiple Sclerosis.
Dr. McGovern especially welcomed her guest lecturer, Prof. Marie Vidailhet, one of the pioneers of clinical semiology, from Salpêtrière Hospital, Sorbonne University, in Paris, France.
