Exercise in Brain Health and Disease

Sedentary behavior is on the rise, resulting in an increased prevalence of preventable life-limiting diseases, including those affecting the brain. This is despite evidence showing that physical activity is one of the most important modifiable lifestyle factors that supports good brain health throughout life and improves quality of life in old age. In this webinar, speakers will discuss different mechanisms by which exercise positively influences brain health and function across the lifespan, from modulation of inflammation to regulation of adult neurogenesis.

Webinar organised by the FENS Committee for Higher Education and Training on the SfN digital platform, Neuronline.

FENS Friday webinar: “Blood biomarkers: a window to the brain?”

In this FENS Friday webinar were discussed the challenges presented by the blood brain barrier to CNS biomarker discovery and use, the potential of extracellular vesicles as novel markers of brain function and dysfunction, and the clinical relevance of established and novel blood biomarkers of neuropsychiatric disorders and brain injury. The limitations of the use of blood-borne CNS biomarkers both in the laboratory and the clinic and provide insights into the future development of novel biomarkers of brain health and disease were also explored.

The webinar was organised by the FENS Committee for Higher Educqtion qnd Trqining (CHET).

FENS Friday webinar: New avenues for understanding and treating epilepsy

Epilepsy is not only a common, often devastating disease but also a comorbidity of many neurological disorders, in which control of seizures may significantly improve quality of life and even prognosis. Recent years have witnessed major advancements in the identification of the mechanisms of disease that hold the promise to lead to new treatments. Organised by the FENS Committee for Higher Education and Training (CHET), this FENS Friday webinar provided an overview of these findings and of their potential implications not only for epilepsy but also for other neurological diseases.
