Neurology is changing, and so are we. As the field of neurology progresses, we are seeing a vast increase in collaborative, translational research and, alongside this, an increasing demand to close the gap between basic neuroscience and clinical practice.
At Neurology Central, we recognize this need: so, as well as continuing to provide the latest news, opinions, interviews and journal articles across neuroscience and neurology, we are changing our name to Neuro Central. Our new name reflects the truly translational quality of our content and, with it, we look forward to sharing with you many more exciting new features and focuses in the coming months.
To kick us off, take a look at this recent opinion piece on developing a path from bench to bedside for sudden death in epilepsy (SUDEP) from Mark Stewart (SUNY Downstate Medical Center, NY, USA), which includes his group’s work on developing an appropriate small animal model. Also, listen to our NCTalks podcast with Mark Frasier (Michael J Fox Foundation, NY, USA), who discusses how a precision medicine approach to treating Parkinson’s disease could soon become a reality.
In addition, our Spotlights continue to address hot topics across neuroscience and neurology, drawing on expert opinions from both lab and clinic. Over the past 2 months, we have been exploring the ever-growing field of neuroimmunology, featuring journal articles, interviews and opinion pieces. And, later this month, look out for our next Spotlight focusing on neuromodulation; an area that is continuing to revolutionize treatments for a wealth of neurological disorders. You can find more information on all the Neuro Central Spotlights here.
As you can see, there’s a lot happening on the new Neuro Central and even more in the pipeline, which I look forward to sharing with you in the coming weeks and months!
Additionally, if you would like to share your research or thoughts with other members of the Neuro Central community in a content piece for the site, I’d be delighted to hear from you – you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, come by and chat with us at an upcoming conference – the Neuro Central team will be attending the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting in Boston (MA, USA) later this month and we would love to meet you there.
All the best,
Editor, Neuro Central
