Coma and chronic disorders of consciousness

This panel intends to raise awareness and knowledge on the one side on chronic disorders of consciousness, such as vegetative state/unresponsive wakefulness, minimal conscious state, as well as locked-in syndrome, and on the other side on acute coma. It represents therefore an intersecting field between chronic and acute conditions. Moreover, its natural interplay involves a tight collaboration with several other panels, e.g., clinical neurophysiology, neurocritical care, neurorehabilitation, and epilepsy.
