What is your specialty training and background?
How did you become interested in HH research and care? What are your contributions to the HH field of research and care?
When I started working as a neuropsychologist at epilepsy center Freiburg I soon became interested in the field of HH. We see patients with HH from all over Germany, from all ages, and most interestingly with very different cognitive and psychological profiles. In our workgroup cognitive profiles of patients with HH, especially before and after neurosurgical interventions, have systematically been studied for many years.
The Symposium is important because
This will be my first HH Symposium. HH is a relatively rare diagnosis with a very heterogeneous group of affected patients. It will be a lot to learn and maybe generate new ideas in terms of research or treatment.
