Dr. Alan McComas will be the featured speaker for the joint 31st Historia Medica Lecture and the Department of Neurology’s William M. and Pudge Landau Lecture. His talk will focus on the nervous system and explanations for a newly recognized type of clinical disorder, the “channelopathy”. Born in Australia and educated in the United Kingdom, Dr. McComas has spent most of his working life in Canada, where he was the first Head of Neurology and the founding Chair of Biomedical Sciences at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario. An ardent neurophysiologist, his research has spanned many topics including muscle development, nerve and muscle regeneration after injury, muscle fatigue, aging, muscle reflexes and touch sensation. He is, however, best known for having devised a simple electrophysiological method for estimating the numbers of nerve fibres supplying individual human muscles. Dr. Alan McComas is the author of “Galvani’s Spark: The Story of the Nerve Impulse.”
