NEURACLIN is a network of North-East based Neuroscience and Research oriented Academics and Clinicians. The aim of this network is to bring Academics and Clinicians together, with a view to making it easier to share ideas and practice, to disseminate results, and to collaborate on research projects.
The organisation of NEURACLIN is led by Dr Colin Lever and Dr James Dachtler (Psychology Department, Durham University), and Dr Stephen Evans (NHS South Tees, James Cook University Hospital).
NEURACLIN holds an annual conference in September. The NEURACLIN 2016 conference took place on September 20th in the Psychology Department, Durham University.
The NEURACLIN 2017 conference will be held on September 20th in James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough.
We envisage that NEURACLIN will focus on memory-affecting disorders, including but not limited to Dementias and Epilepsy. Research themes in NEURACLIN speakers’ conference talks include: early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease; social impairment in dementia; inflammation and amyloid imaging in Lewy Body dementia; overlapping pathology in dementias; mechanisms underlying epilepsy; tasks for Accelerated Long-term Forgetting in temporal lobe epilepsy.
Current members are based in Durham, Newcastle, York, Sheffield, Leeds, and Bradford. The North-East is broadly defined for our purposes, and membership can be extended to those outside the North-East.
