CONy 2016: Controversies in Neurology were ignited in Lisbon and acknowledged in the International Journal of Clinical Neurosciences and Mental Health

Elsa Azevedo and Amos D. Korczyn
Controversy was ignited in Lisbon during March 2016 by one of the most important meetings in clinical neurology worldwide. The 10th Meeting of Controversies in Neurology (CONy) took shape along four days of intense debate and rich scientific overview. Leading experts from all subspecialties of clinical neurology and neuroscience coming from all corners of the world got together to challenge paradigms, update knowledges and identify the boundaries of current clinical reasoning. The program was organized across seven main areas of debate (Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Dementia, Headache, Movement disorders, Epilepsy and Neuromuscular), predated by discussions on the locally identified Machado-Joseph’s Disease and Portuguese amyloid neuropathy, followed by insights on the Neurology beyond the horizon. The present special issue of the International Journal of Clinical Neurosciences and Mental Health devoted to the 10th Meeting on Controversies in Neurology includes the abstracts of all the invited lectures and free communications of this meeting, as well as full articles proceeding from CONy 2016, as reviews, original research, viewpoints or case reports. It is a tribute to this event, allowing it to remain immortalized in an international academic journal. We look forward for more debates and enlightening discussions in CONy 11th, which will take place shortly (March 23-26, 2017) in Athens, Greece (www.comtecmed.com/cony).

Special Issue on Controversies in Neurology. From the 10th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy), Lisbon, Portugal. 17–20 March 2016.
