It is difficult to keep pace with the growth in clinical and basic data in neurology. There is often only limited time for thorough and critical discussions for practicing clinicians. NeuCon (a scientific forum among neurologists of the ASN) provides a platform for Neurologists in Sri Lanka to discuss and compare experiences on topics of controversy, thus closing the gap between the expansion of knowledge and its dissemination and use.
