The highly successful Practical Cognition Course will take place for the fourth year running from 20th to 21st October 2011 at the Research Beehive, Newcastle upon Tyne.

There will be a practical introductory session to cognitive assessment followed by four sessions of case presentations discussing the assessment, diagnosis and management of common cognitive syndromes. The course begins and ends with the patient. Case presentations will feature video material illustrating disorders that clinicians may encounter in daily practice. Each session will also include a talk from an invited expert, who will provide a framework for understanding the clinically relevant neuroscience.
