2013 Annual Meeting and Courses

The 2013 American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) 2013 Annual Meeting & Courses was held on February 5 – 10, 2013 at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay in Miami, Florida. A total of 480 delegates registered to attend the Annual Meeting & Courses.

The 2013 program was designed to provide a solid review of the fundamentals and explore the latest scientific advances in both “central” and “peripheral” clinical neurophysiology. The meeting featured extensive coverage of basic and advanced epilepsy & EEG, neuromuscular disease, nerve conduction studies and EMG, magnetoencephalography (MEG) and neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (NIOM). 

The 2013 Award Recipients were:

Charles F. Bolton, MD, Robert S. Schwab Award
Rodolfo Llinas, MD, PhD, Pierre Gloor Award
Richard P. Brenner, MD, Herbert H. Jasper Award

ACNS also invited two extraordinary physicians to give the Plenary Lectures.  Jeffrey H. Gertsch, MD gave a fascinating lecture titled “Interventional Neurophysiology for the 21st Century” during Friday’s Opening Session, while C.J. Stam, MD, PhD presented the inspiring lecture titled “Small-World Networks: The Clinical Neurophysiology of Communication in the Brain” during Saturday’s Opening Session.

The success of the Annual Meeting & Courses was in large part due to the efforts of the outstanding organization of the Program, Course, and Continuing Medical Education Committees. The Course Committee Chair, William Tatum, DO worked closely with the Course Chairs to ensure the Annual Courses highlighted growth areas in Clinical Neurophysiology.   The Program Committee Co-Chairs, Jonathan C. Edwards, MD and Mark Hallett, MD organized the Annual Meeting to ensure the lectures covered all the latest scientific advances in clinical neurophysiology. ACNS would also like to thank all the energetic and dedicated Annual Meeting & Courses Chairs and Speakers.

Lastly, ACNS would like to extend its appreciation to the 2013 Annual Meeting & Courses supporters:
Cadwell, Compumedics, Esaote, Magstim, Natus Neurology, and Persyst.
