The BNPA, as part of their aim of providing the main UK forum for bringing together different disciplines of the clinical brain sciences are delighted that their 28th Annual Meeting will be held jointly with the association of British Neurologists, the British Psychological Society’s Division of Neuropsychology and the UK Function Symptoms Research Group. 

This extraordinary meeting will be held in London on 4, 5 and 6 February 2015. 

The topics to be explored will include the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ patients get functional symptoms and then what to do about them. The neuropsychiatry of body image including phantom phenomenology, alien limb, neglect and anorexia. 

And memory disorders including what to do about subjective memory complaints in the routine clinic, the pathology of positive memory experiences such as déjà vu and flashbacks, new understandings of memory systems, and what is new on transient global amnesia.
