Biography:

Wagih El Masri is an accredited Surgeon in the field of Traumatic Spinal Injuries (TSI).He trained at Stoke Mandeville, Oxford, Guys Hospitals & the USA between 1971&1982. Appointed Director of the MCI Centre in the RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital Oswestry (44 beds) between 1983 & 2014. He treated 10,000 patients with cord damage and took full responsibility of 3000 patients from the first few hours/days of injury to end of life. Published 148 manuscript, lectured worldwide . Past President of ISCoS - Received National & International Awards from a range of Institutions including the House of Lords in the UK.

Abstract:

Traumatic spinal cord injuries (TSCI) are life-changing events. The medical, physical, psychological, social, financial, vocational, environmental & matrimonial effects also have an impact on the quality of life of the patient . The combination of consequent generalised physiological impairment, multi-system malfunctions, multiple disabilities, wide range of potential complications, sensory impairment together with the non-medical effects impose challenges to patients, carers and clinicians. Early prediction of neurological recovery is important to patients and family members especially during the early stages following injury.
 
Neurological Recovery is not uncommon following traumatic spinal cord damage and is predictable. With good simultaneous Active Physiological Conservative Management of the injured spine and the multisystem malfunctions all complications that can further damage the Physiologically Unstable injured cord (PUSC) can be prevented. Provided both the biomechanical instability and Physiological Instability of the injured cord are well contained to protect the cord from further mechanical and non mechanical damage most patients will exhibit a degree of neurological recovery. The magnitude and extent of this recovery depends on the presence or absence of sensory and sensory-motor long tract sparing in the first 48 hours of injury irrespective of the radiological presentation on Xrays, CT or MRI.
 
To date there is no evidence that surgical or non-surgical interventions on the injured spine and/or spinal cord add value to the neurological or other outcomes of patients with TSCI. The risks of further damage to the PUSC by a number of pathological mechanisms during surgery, post operatively as well as by non-operative management of the injured spine without adequate attention to all the malfunctioning systems of the body during the transition between the stage of spinal & neurogenic shock to return of reflexes can result in neurological deterioration, lack of expected degree of recovery or delays in recovery.
 
The positive and negative prognostic indicators of neurological recovery, and the factors that enhance, prevent or cause neurological deterioration in patients with complete and incomplete cord damage will be discussed.

Biography:

Avathvadi Venkatesan Srinivasan, driven by his quest for excellence joined Madras Medical College (MMC) and received MD (General Medicine) in 1978. Later he pursued and received DM in Neurology from his alma mater. His thirst for research, skills and the latest development in Neurology made him find his way to the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery, his pioneering research work on Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome got him bestowed with the PhD degree in 2002. It made him the first ever recipient in Neurology from the Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University, since its inception in 1988. His path breaking research (6 papers) in Phantom limbs, Stroke etc., with Padma Bhusan Dr. V S Ramachandran, Director, Center of Brain and Cognition, University of San Diego remain acclamatory to his undisputed authority in Behavioral Neurology and Movement disorders. He authored more than 100 scientifi c papers; dozens of his other work have found places in reputed medical journals and has published 12 chapters. His research papers presented, won acclaims in 60 National conferences and in 25 International conferences held in UK, USA, Japan, Australia, China, Europe and other countries. He is the only one from India to collaborate with Dr V S Ramachandran, who is the first recipient of Padma Bhusan for his contribution to Neurosciences.

Abstract:

Cerebello cognitive affective syndrome (CCAS; Schmahmann’s Syndrome) is characterized by deficits in executive function, linguistic processing, spatial cognition and affect regulation. The causes of CCAS include cerebellar agenisis, dysplasia and hypoplasia, cerebellar stroke, tumour, cerebellitis, trauma, PSP, Multiple System Atrophy. This is also seen in children with prenatal early postnatal or developmental diseases. Clinical Impairment is seen in planning, set shifting, abstract reasoning, verbal fluency and working memory with distractibility and inattention. CCAS challenges the traditional view of cerebellum being predominantly motor functions and focusses on the non-motor function also. This is because of its connection to cerebral cortex and limbic system. One case of CCAS is discussed with video segments.
 
Case 1: An engineering graduate student met with an accident and was unconscious for hours. He had loss of spatial cognition with perseveration, distractibity and inattention. He had spatial disorganization with visio-spatial memory affected. He had blunting of affect and inappropriate behaviour. He slowly recovered and still has cognitive dysfunction and cerebellar science. He developed depression and needed psychiatric help.
 
In conclusion, an unified paradigm for cognitive science with simplified neurodynamics and different levels of modelling or important. Recurrent neural network, reservoir computing => psychological spaces. The open questions includes in this are
1. High dimensional P-spaces with finsler geometry needed for visualization of the mind events. At the end of the road, the physics – Like theory of events in mental spaces, mind as the shadow of neurodynamics can give us an absolute scientific space for this newer syndrome in neurological literature.
