Message from the IFCN President

Professor Jonathan Cole

President’s Letter. October 2023.

It is with regret that this letter begins, like the last, with news of the death of one of our most eminent colleagues. Professor Arnold Starr, neurologist, neurophysiologist, and neuroscientist, and founding Chair of the Department of Neurology at the University of California, Irvine, passed away on July 2th, 2023.

Early in his career, Arne, as he was known, became fascinated by the complexities of the brain, leading him towards medicine and then neurology. His curiosity led him to view gaps in our knowledge as personal challenges. His research focused on auditory and somatosensory neurophysiology, cognitive psychology and clinical neurology. Perhaps his work on short and long-latency evoked potentials will form his academic legacy, including his work on auditory neuropathy.
