Nerve and Muscle Excitability Workshop,
Chicheley Hall, June 2014
Prof Hugh Bostock is planning another 3-day course on nerve excitability testing at the Royal Society’s Kavli International Centre at Chicheley Hall. This will be an intensive, residential course, running from midday Wednesday June 18th 2014 to the morning of Saturday June 21st 2014.
Like the first nerve excitability workshops held in Queen Square, this is currently planned primarily as a beginner’s course, to introduce clinical neurophysiologists (and others interested in axonal pathophysiology) to the ‘Trond’ protocol for assessing nerve membrane properties in vivo by excitability testing. It is expected to cover the biophysical basis of nerve excitability, and to provide practical experience of excitability testing with Qtrac/Trond software, and analysis and interpretation of the results. An opportunity will also be provided to see how muscle membrane properties can be studied in vivo by recording velocity recovery cycles.
If you think you or a colleague may be interested in this or later workshops, please contact us to request further information.
Please note that at present only the dates above and the maximum number of 20 participants (with 5 equipment sets and 5 demonstrators) are fixed. The programme is flexible. Depending upon interest, a detailed prospectus and the exact cost will be circulated to interested parties and relevant societies by about the end of January.
