Professor Stone is Professor of Neurology at the University of Edinburgh, and Dr Nicholson, is Honorary Consultant Neuropsychiatrist at Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), Kings College London.

We cover everything from presentations of FND, encephalitis and FND, advice for someone who believes they have the condition, advice for medical professionals, and overcoming stigma associated with FND and much more.
