Message from the IFCN President

Dear Colleagues,

It was with great sadness that we noted earlier this week the passing away of Professor Johannes Noth on March 10, 2022 at 79 years of age. He served the IFCN as Secretary during the presidency of François Mauguière (2001–2006), and you may read our full tribute to Professor Noth. Our thoughts are with his family, in particular with his wife Gunhild.

The Editor’s Choice for April 2022 is: Verdugo RJ, Matamala JM, Inui K, Kakigi R, Valls-Solé J, Hansson P, Nilsen KB, Lombardi R, Lauria G, Petropoulos IN, Malik RA, Treede RD, Baumgärtner U, Jara PA, Campero M (2022) Review of techniques useful for the assessment of sensory small fiber neuropathies: Report from an IFCN expert group. Clin Neurophysiol 136:13–38.

The IFCN has endorsed a number of Guidelines and Expert Consensus papers on peripheral clinical neurophysiology (collected in the virtual special issue).

Professor Mark Hallett will present Clinical Neurophysiology of Functional Movement Disorders

Date: Saturday, July 16, 2022 at 8:00 AM EDT (2:00 PM CET)

Functional movement disorders (FMD) are common conditions, and while the diagnosis is often clear on clinical examination alone, that is not always easy. Clinical neurophysiology can help make the diagnosis or confirm the diagnosis, in which case, the certainty of the diagnosis can be raised to “laboratory confirmed.” Clinical neurophysiology is most useful for functional tremor and functional myoclonus. Techniques will be described for doing the physiological studies.

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.
