About This Event

Event Description:

The contribution of inflammatory processes within the Central Nervous System (CNS) has acquired increasing relevance beyond disorders classically considered as autoimmune, such as multiple sclerosis (MS). For example, inflammatory processes can be relevant in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism, and in neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia. In this workshop we will explore different aspects of autoimmunity and inflammation in relevant neuropsychiatric and degenerative disorders of childhood and adulthood, exploring both innovative experimental data and their repercussion in clinical practice.

Alternate Description:

Main objectives: 1) to understand the contribution of inflammation and autoimmunity in neuropsychiatric and degenerative disorders of childhood and adulthood; 2) to understand the clinical significance of inflammation and neuronal autoantibodies in psychiatric disorders.
