I had the chance to visit the National Neurology Institute of Mexico.
Thank you doctor David Dávila to show me the institute and your work. Thanks also to all the team who are working at INNN, researchers, geneticians, neurologists. And of course a special thanks to Donaji, @dtoledob, who organized this visit.
It was fascinating to learn about our genom and especially about Huntington Disease and genetics diseases. I had the opportunity to see how we’re finding the « CAG » triplets by using differents technologies.
There’re differents areas of work, psychiatric, psychologist, genetic, neurology and working on all neurologic diseases.
They also have a laboratory of research about huntington disease where they’re working on mouses.
I could ask many questions about huntington and genetics, it was fascinating !
And to finish, we visited the museum which we can find brains preserved in formal.
The National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery « Manuel Velasco Suárez » is considered one of the main centers dedicated to the study of neurological sciences.
Initially conceived as an institution where the three main divisions of clinical neuroscience are cultivated with equal academic importance: Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, its results have proven that this design was the correct choice for the comprehensive study of brain diseases.
It is one of the few institutions in the world that is exclusively dedicated to the research, teaching, diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases, from their molecular bases to their social components.
It is a leading institution in Mexico, with great international recognition, which represents a unique opportunity to design programs, care guides and strategies for neurological, neurosurgical and neuropsychiatric conditions.
