Posterior Fossa Society

The 2nd meeting of the Posterior Fossa Society will take place at the Convention Centre Liverpool on Sunday, June 12th 2016. The Posterior Fossa Society is an international group of researchers and health care professionals (doctors, nurses, psychologists, speech pathologists, linguists, neuroscientists etc.) who are dedicated to research into the causes, features, treatment and prevention of the postoperative Cerebellar Mutism Syndrome (CMS) and Cerebellar Cognitive Affective Syndrome (CCAS) in children and adults. It reaches its goals by systematically gathering and exchanging information on the CMS and CCAS, both online and during international meetings and conferences. In the first meeting in Reykjavik, Iceland in June 2015, the definition of postoperative Cerebellar Mutism Syndrome was addressed. In the meeting of the Posterior Fossa Society in Liverpool, the focus will be on prevention and treatment of symptoms. The meeting is open to members and non-members of the Society. In addition to lectures of experts in the field, in the program, one session is reserved for free papers and opportunity for poster presentations.
