On june 18, 2009 we celebrated the 60 year anniversary of the department of Clinical Neurophysiology in Groningen with a scientific symposium that was attended by almost 200 people. The symposium was centered around the increasing role of clinical neurophysiology in the academic hospital of today and the near future, with talks by Mart van Lieburg, Dennis Mc Farland, Machiel Zwarts, Michiel Staal, Jan Willem Pott, Andre Aleman, John Rothwell and myself. Furthermore, in 8 hands-on workshops attendants got a chance to get acquainted with state-of-the-art techniques such as intra-operative neuromonitoring, nerve and 3D vascular ultrasound and polysomnography.
Additionally, we presented our book on the history of clinical neurophysiology in Groningen ‘Signalen van prikkeling’ and premiered the new promotional movie of our department. This day was a great success.
