Message from the IFCN President

Professor Jonathan Cole

Dear Colleagues,

I should begin with an apology. Despite our best intentions and planning, the change in management which took place during December led to some problems with our website functioning. These were most noticeable in the lack of updating to the President’s Letter, (which may not have been missed) and, more importantly, to our next Masterclass not being advertised. The latter was due in late January, but we think should be advertised on our site for a few weeks first, so we decided to postpone it by a few weeks. This is unfortunate, especially since it is being given by a past-President of the IFCN and of the EMEA Chapter, Professor Paolo Rossini, who has made, and continues to make, huge contributions to our specialty. I am delighted now to confirm that Professor Rossini’s Masterclass, which will be announced more formally on our website properly, will be on Saturday 25th February 2023.

Professor Paolo Rossini will present:
The Role of Neurophysiological Techniques in the Quest for Early Diagnosis of Dementia

Date: Saturday, February 25, 2023 at 8:00 am EST (2:00 pm CET).

Early diagnosis of Dementia (Alzheimer & Others) is a pre-requisite for early intervention on modifiable risk-factors (both favoring and contrasting the neurodegeneration).

Technologies to intercept early or prodromal stages of dementia are presently either invasive (i.e. lumbar puncture for CSF) or excessively costly (i.e. PET-SCAN) for a nationwide screening of at-risk population.

Neurophysiological techniques, including EEG/MEG recordings of ongoing or task-related electromagnetic brain activity as well as TMS-EEG are non-invasive, widely available and at relatively low-cost.

Modern methods of EEG/MEG and TMS/EEG signal characteristics via graph-theory, Artificial Intelligence and connectivity analysis provided encouraging results in terms of accuracy/specificity/sensibility for early dementia recognition and follow-up.

Review of the literature as well as innovative and recent approaches for research and clinical application will be offered to the Participants.

IFCN Publications

The IFCN has two official journals Clinical Neurophysiology and Clinical Neurophysiology Practice.
Clinical Neurophysiology Journal Cover

Clinical Neurophysiology Journal

Volume 144 (December 2022)

Clinical Neurophysiology is the official journal of IFCN and its member Societies. It has been adopted as the official journal of the Italian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology, the Czech Society of Clinical Neurophysiology, the Brazilian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology and the International Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology.

Clinical Neurophysiology is dedicated to publishing scholarly reports on the pathophysiology underlying diseases of the peripheral and central nervous system of humans.

Clinical Neurophysiology Practice Journal

Clinical Neurophysiology Practice (CNP) is a new Open Access journal that focuses on clinical practice issues in clinical neurophysiology including relevant new research, case reports or clinical series, normal values and didactic reviews. It complements Clinical Neurophysiology which focuses on innovative research in the specialty. It has a role in supporting established clinical practice, and an educational role for trainees, technicians and practitioners.
