There are more than 1,100 known neurological disorders. Your nervous system is made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves throughout your body: together they control all the workings of the body. When something goes wrong with a part of your nervous system, you can experience difficulty moving, speaking, swallowing, breathing or learning. You can also have problems with your memory, senses or mood. In this lecture, the Neurological Foundation’s medical adviser, neurologist Dr Jon Simcock, will speak about the latest progress in the understanding of brain disorders. He will also discuss how the 21st century has introduced exciting new neurological investigation techniques, paving the way for enhanced diagnosis and treatment

Dr Jon Simcock has enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a neurologist. He was born in Dunedin, educated at New Plymouth Boy’s High School, and graduated from the Otago School of Medicine in 1960. He became a member of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians in 1964 and completed his specialist training as a neurologist at the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases, Queens Square, London, in 1968. He then took up a position at Auckland Hospital, also conducting neurology clinics at Northland and Taranaki Base Hospitals. He retired from his full-time public hospital positions in 2002 but continues in private practice and occasional temporary duties at various hospitals in the North Island. Dr Simcock was on the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Neurological Foundation for several years and became the Foundation’s Medical Adviser in 1994.
