Research 2009

The Annual Neuroscience Research Contest was held on September 10, 2009 at the Department Conference Room.  There were ten original papers that were presented from the Sections of Adult and Pediatric Neurology in three categories: Case Report/Case Series, Descriptive, and Analytical.

The annual Philippine Neurological Association research forum was held on October 17, 2009 at UST Hospital.  Four original papers from PGH were presented as finalists by their primary authors.  Dr. Janet Adajar of Pediatric Neurology won 3rd place in the descriptive category with her paper on the EEG findings of patients with Complex Febrile Seizures while Dr. Jude Bayana of Pediatric Neurology won 4th place in the same category with his paper on the use of newer antiepileptics for neonatal seizures.  Dr. Natasha L. Fabiaña of Adult Neurology won 3rd place for her paper entitled, Risk Factors for the Development of Seizures and Epilepsy among Post Stroke Patients in a Tertiary Hospital: A Retrospective Cohort Study. Dr Aloysius Domingo of Adult Neurology won 4th place for his meta-analysis, Secondary Prevention After Cerebrovascular Events: Will Angiotensin Receptor blockers Protect? (SPACE-WARP).  The other original papers submitted were qualified for poster presentation which was held during the PNA Annual Convention.  In the said event, the paper of Dr Jhaphet Agunias entitled Parkinsonism as sequela of cyanide poisoning by intentional silver jewelry cleaner ingestion: A Case Report won 2nd place in poster presentation.

Would anyone know where research involving electrophysiological recordings (chronic implanted electrode arrays) using Rhesus monkeys is done in the Philippines?

Thanks,

Sorry. We’re not familiar of any ongoing research of this kind. Though, we’ll ask others.
