Brain, Behavior and Health: Emerging Research

February 22, 2019
Holiday Inn Yorkdale - 3450 Dufferin Street

The Canadian Society of Medical Evaluators and the Canadian Academy of Psychologists in Disability Assessment are pleased to present a conference focused on the complex relations amongst the brain, behavior and health with Canadian researchers of international recognition. 

Speakers include Dr. Amir Minerbi, Dr. Valerie Taylor, Dr. Bobby Stojanoski and Dr. David Corey.  Research regarding the bidirectional connection between the gut microbiome and the brain will be presented, including research results on the microbiome and fibromyalgia and on mental illness (psychobiotics), with implications for assessment and treatment.

We are also excited to have research presented from the lab of Dr. Adrian Owen regarding brain ‘death’ and consciousness and research regarding fMRI and brain injury.  

In addition to the above, lawyers will present complex cases involving both psychological and physical injuries, and discuss how the cases were viewed by the court.

Please stay tuned for detailed information regarding the above presentations and bios of the presenters. 

CALL FOR PAPERS:  We are requesting submissions of original research that would fit within the parameters of brain, behavior and health.  Please submit an abstract by January 4, 2018 to:

Dr. Avi Orner, CSME President
Dr. Jeremy Frank, CAPDA Past President
Dr. Konstantine Zakzanis, CSME Vice-President and Program Chair
