March 22 2024, 12AM-1PM: ALS Lunch Seminar
Speaker: Colm Peelo
Title: "Neuropsychology of ALS: an overview of extramotor symptoms, familiality and endophenotypes".

We welcome Colm Peelo from Trinity College in Dublin. Join us for another ALS Lunch Seminar, from 12 to 13 (CET).

About Colm Peelo:
I'm a 4th year PhD Student in the Academic Unit of Neurology, School of Medicine in Trinity College Dublin. My research is on the neuropsychology of progressive neurodegenerative disorders of the motor system, with a focus on ALS and HD. My PhD research aims to characterise the cognitive and behavioural profile of presymptomatic and early symptomatic HD patients in Ireland. Similarly, I am assessing the cognitive profiles of unaffected family members of familial-ALS patients to evaluate the presence of potential cognitive endophenotypes and begin to examine early cognitive change in unaffected-C9orf72 gene carriers over time.
