Dr Ava Easton talks to Professor Jon Stone and Dr Tim Nicholson about Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) - a problem with the functioning of the nervous system and how the brain and body send and receive signals.

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.

We hope you enjoy this informative discussion with Tim and Jon!
