BRYAN, Texas, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Brazos Valley residents, neuroscience researchers, and interested clinicians will each have opportunities to hear from internationally recognized researchers on the topic of stroke during the Texas Brain and Spine Institute's second annual Neuroscience Symposium on Sept. 19. This year's symposium will consist of a morning presentation for the public and an afternoon session for clinicians and researchers. The speakers are both neuroscience specialists who are at the vanguard in the field of stroke, Mhairi Macrae, Ph.D. and Jeffrey Saver, M.D.

The public session is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon, and the clinical/research session is scheduled from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. There is no registration fee, but preregistration is appreciated. To register, you may call 1.800.793.9106 or e-mail info@txbsi.com

The purpose of the TBSI Neuroscience Symposium is to showcase current research and to promote understanding of a variety of nervous system disorders. "TBSI was founded under the concept of bringing together top-level clinical care with current neuroscience research to provide the best possible treatment to patients with neurological disorders or injuries," said L. Gerard Toussaint III, MD, chair of this year's symposium. "The symposium is an ideal way to share some of the latest information on stroke research with the public as well as provide continuing education for clinical staff."

Dr. Macrae is the Deputy Head of Division and Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. She obtained undergraduate and graduate degrees in Pharmacology from the University of Glasgow. The main focus of her research is in the area of stroke biology and cerebral blood flow. She is the Co-Director of the 7T MRI Facility at the University of Glasgow and has recently published data regarding the relationship between hypertension, estrogen, and stroke severity.

Dr. Saver, the Director of the UCLA Stroke Center and Professor of Neurology at UCLA, has been accredited with over 200 publications. The main focus of his research encompasses stroke prevention, treatment, and consequences. He obtained both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in medicine at Harvard. He now serves as a Fellow for the American Academy of Neurology and member of the National Stroke Association.
