Our lineup features Belinda Lennox discussing antibodies in first psychosis, Adam Handel exploring the role of antibodies in neuropsychiatric presentations, Derek Bolton talking on the biopsychosocial model in psychiatry and Lucy Foulkes and Tamara Pringsheim’s talks on the impact of mental health awareness on mental health presentations and the increase of functional tic behaviours during the COVID 19 pandemic and the role of societal influences on this.

We are also exploring the future with presentations by Joseph Kambeitz on the role of Artificial intelligence in the categorisation of disease; Zoe Kourtzi on the use of AI in dementia, Ben Seymour on AI in pain management and Dan Blackburn on AI in language processing. Environmental influences on neurology, psychology, and psychiatry will be explored by Ruth Dobson, Lucy Vanes, and Rohit Shankar. From Mexico, Jesus Ramirez Bermudez will shed light on neuropsychiatry in Latin America and also how psychiatrists make diagnoses.

Angela Vincent will be receiving a well deserved lifetime achievement award which is fitting as her research on antibodies did much to highlight the blurred interface between psychiatry and neurology particularly in relation to psychosis.

We invite you to be part of the discussion on how neurology and psychiatry can adapt to the challenges of the new world order in investigating individuals with psychosis and other ‘psychiatric’ diagnoses.
