This year we are honoured to have one of the world’s experts on the science of emotion and the brain as our keynote presenter – Dr. Richard J. Davidson. Dr. Davidson also focuses on methods to promote wellbeing, including meditation and related contemplative practices. He has been featured widely in the media - the Today Show, ABC’s Nightline, National Public Radio, National Geographic Magazine, Time Magazine, Newsweek, O: the Oprah Magazine and the Harvard Business Review. This is a rare and wonderful opportunity to hear Dr. Davidson speak in person.
London Health Research Day is the largest research day of its kind in Ontario. Each year, more than 700 people attend this event.

Presented by Dr. Gerald Pfeffer, MD CM FRCPC PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Calgary: “Interpreting Genetic Variants Of Unknown Significance in Neurologic Disorders”
This workshop is presented by Dr. Gail Eskes, a clinical neuropsychologist and Professor, Dalhousie University. SWOSN is offering this session via OTN link to the in–person event. During this workshop participants will become familiar with the different types of memory and how they work, learn how stroke and related factors can affect memory and how they work, and become familiar with a framework for memory rehabilitation after stroke.
Learn and gain experience in evidence-based interventions to improve memory and support learning post stroke.
The Symposium facilitates an active and highly cooperative style of communication and interaction between prominent cardiologists and neurologists, thus creating favourable conditions for discussion towards a more integrated approach to our patient care.

Recent developments in cognitive neuroscience have led to exciting new
possibilities for understanding consciousness. Much of this work has been carried out
with fMRI; however, similar approaches can be developed with cost
such as EEG,
potentially better outcomes due
higher temporal resolution.
