Functional Neurological Disorders: Scientific and Ethical Challenges

January 26, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Functional neurological disorders (FND) mimic known neurological disorders, but do not have a known structural or “organic” cause, and have traditionally been classified as psychiatric conditions. Drs. Stone and Perez will discuss the neuroscience of these disorders, as well as the ethical and professional challenges involved in caring for patients with FND.

There will be an informal dinner and discussion after the panel presentation.
