Message from the IFCN President

Professor Jonathan Cole

Dear Colleagues,

Perhaps my first task in writing this should be to introduce myself. I have worked in a busy mid-sized department of Clinical Neurophysiology in a university hospital on the south coast of England for thirty years, building the department, and am also a professor at the local university. My research interests have been in sensory, motor, and cognitive neuroscience. I am also interested in the experience of chronic neurological impairment and have written several books in this area. I have served on the Council of the British Society for Clinical Neurophysiology and was its President from 2005-2008. Thereafter I was elected to the Europe, Middle East and Africa Chapter of the IFCN and became successively its secretary/treasurer and then president before serving the last four years on IFCN’s ExCo. During this time I worked on various topics but education is perhaps the most important. I hope I have some experience along the way which will be useful in my new role.

Associate Professor Ronit Pressler will present Early Onset Epilepsy Syndromes—Update on Definitions and EEG Criteria

Date: Saturday, September 24, 2022 at 8:00 am EDT (2:00 pm CET)

Epilepsy syndromes have been recognized for more than 50 years, as distinct electroclinical phenotypes with therapeutic and prognostic implications but only recently the ILAE has published consensus-based definitions and classifications of epilepsy syndromes according to the age of onset. In this webinar, epilepsy syndromes with onset in neonates, infants and early childhood will be presented with emphasis on EEG criteria.

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.
