London, United Kingdom, August 13, 2019
The newest edition of EMJ Neurology is published today, featuring an independent review of this year’s EAN Congress including abstract reviews, breaking news, and interviews with some of the top figures in the EAN organisation.
Read in-house editorials on the subjects that were hotly debated at the EAN congress. Layla Southcombe investigates the effect that neuroinflammation could be having on disorders that are not commonly associated with inflammation, including epilepsy, stroke, and migraine and asks whether the approach to developing new treatments for neurological diseases needs an overhaul. Kirstie Turner’s piece looks at the social media phenomenon of #BrainLifeGoals by the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA). Exploring how the campaign links to the associations’ mission to empower neurology patient groups, the editorial breaks down the four pillars of EFNA’s work and contextualises the campaign in today’s social media landscape.
Peer-reviewed articles accompany the congress review of EAN, complementing the hot topics and adding to the wide range of high-quality content published by EMJ. The Editor’s Pick in this edition is written by Bart Appelhof et al. discusses the differences between the 12 types of pontocerebellar hypoplasia, filling a notable gap in the literature and bringing the medical community one step closer to developing targeted treatments for each of the different types. In addition, Rubenstein and Levy review the aetiology, diagnosis, treatment, and future directions for childhood seizures while Cargnelutti reviews the fascinating phenomenon of acquired language disorders in bilinguals.
