We were excited to welcome two very important guests to Deymed last week.
Following the BrainBox Initiative Conference 2018 and Advanced TMS Techniques Workshop, which were both held in London and organised by Rogue Resolutions, our key partner in the neuroscience research field, we were visited by Professor Yoshikazu Ugawa (Fukushima Medical University) and by Paul Hammond (University College London).
Professor Ugawa is Director and Professor of the Department of Neurology and Vice President of Fukushima Medical University, where he has been since 2007. He graduated from Tokyo University in 1978 and studied the physiology of movement disorders under Professor Marsden and Professor Rothwell in Queen Square, London in 1987-1990, after which he returned to Tokyo University. Professor Ugawa is interested in clinical neurophysiology and is one of the pioneers of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
Mr. Paul Hammond is Laboratory Manager in Professor John Rothwell’s laboratory in Queen Square, UCL London. The laboratory specialises in devising new techniques to study the physiology of the human motor system in intact, awake volunteers. The laboratory’s interest is fuelled by the need to use non-invasive techniques to examine pathological changes in neurological disease, not only for the purposes of identifying pathology but also to chart compensatory changes that occur in parts of the system unaffected by the disease process.
