One of the most important scientific meetings in the field of Neuropsychology is organised by the International Neuropsychology Society every year. This year’s event took place on 6-8 July in Barcelona (Spain).

The thematic focus this time was on Global Innovations in Science and Practice and the program was very complete and attractive, with renowned speakers such as Dr Adam Brickman from the Neuropsychology and Alzheimer’s Research Center at Columbia University in New York (USA) (link to the event’s website).


Motivated by the theme of the event, the VIU-NED Chair in Global Neuroscience and Social Change working group participated with a poster presentation on the neuropsychological effects associated with pediatric hydrocephalus according to its etiology. Although it is common for infantile hydrocephalus to occur as a consequence of some Neurodevelopmental disorders such as Spina Bifida and/or Myelomeningocele, this is not always the case, as it can occur as a consequence of postnatal cerebral hemorrhage, for example. Following a systematic review of the literature, the working group has managed to separate and differentiate the neuropsychological effects of pediatric hydrocephalus by its origin (link to poster).

This activity demonstrates the commitment of the VIU-NED Chair’s working group to the production and scientific dissemination of Global Neuroscience, in this case; and represents a further step in the consolidation of the first line of research promoted by the Chair.
