The specialists of Almazov Centre took part in the 14th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology — CONy 2020. This year’s Congress was held online from October 29 to November 1.
The event brought together 5,840 registered delegates from 116 countries. A distinctive feature of the CONY-2020 Congress was that each presentation was organized as discussion. The Congress provided a platform for discussion and sharing of experience, thereby narrowing the gap between knowledge expansion, dissemination and use.
Of particular interest to the audience was the session devoted to the discussion of epilepsy diagnosis and treatment. Presentations were made by leading world experts: Helen Cross (Great Britain), Alla Geht (Russia), Martin Brodie (Great Britain), Natan Bornstein (Israel) and others.
The Congress featured a poster session presenting materials on various issues of neurology.
Two specialists of Almazov Centre took part in the event and presented their e-posters.
Galina Odintsova, Head of Epileptology Research Laboratory at Polenov Neurosurgical Institute (branch of Almazov Centre) presented a poster on “Some clinical aspects of drug-resistant epilepsy in neurosurgical patients”.
Svetlana Kravtsova, Senior Researcher of Epileptology Research Laboratory presented a poster “How does astrocytic gliosis effect on the severity of the focal post-traumatic temporal epilepsy – there is a controversy question, right?”.
The posters were based on a comprehensive analysis of data collected together with the neurosurgical department of Polenov Neurosurgical Institute, Pathology Research Laboratory of Almazov Centre, Research Group of Epigenetics and Metagenomics in Perinatology and Pediatrics of Almazov Centre.
