Please plan to join us at the 34th Annual Meeting for the highly anticipated ANPA social event: the Neuropsychiatry Bazaar. Mingle with colleagues, visit with old friends, and enjoy the different booths on various special interests in neuropsychiatry. 


ANPA’s premier social event is back and IN PERSON this year! We’ve dusted off the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) post-pandemic, and we think you’ll be excited to learn about all the new and exciting things the SIGs have to offer! 

Attendees of the Bazaar are invited to drop by the booths, meet other ANPA members, and join in some great discussions. The Bazaar is a fantastic event for networking; many SIGs have projects they are starting to work on now, just looking for new collaborators! A cash bar and table games will be available throughout the event. Come to learn, stay to socialize!

The 2024 ANPA Neuropsychiatry Bazaar is excited to feature the following booths:

Meet the ANPA Leadership

President David Arciniegas, Past-President Kaloyan Tanev, Treasurer Margo Lauterbach, President-Elect Colin Harrington, Councilors John Campbell, Jay Salpekar, Joey Cooper, Kate Brownlowe, Gaston Baslet 

This is a good time for the ANPA meeting attendees to converse with the organization’s leadership. Dr. Arciniegas is the current president and will be hosting a “listening session” - a time for the meeting attendees to ask questions regarding the organization, to share ideas, and to catch up with how the organization has done over the past year. It is an open forum.

Meet the Editors of the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences

David Arciniegas will be available for questions at the TBI table

As the official Journal of the American Neuropsychiatric Association, the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences (JNCN) aims to publish works that advance the science of brain-behavior relationships, the care of persons and families affected by neurodevelopmental, acquired neurological, and neurodegenerative conditions, and education and training in behavioral neurology & neuropsychiatry. Please join us for a discussion of the journal’s recent initiatives, to learn about opportunities to contribute to our peer review processes, and for information about publishing your work in ANPA’s official journal.


SIG Chair: Jay Salpekar

This session invites participants to bring their questions and any cases highlighting epilepsy in neuropsychiatric presentations. Discussions involving recent research in diagnosis and treatment are welcome!

Neurodevelopmental and Pediatric Neuropsychiatry

SIG Chair: Aaron Hauptman

Please join an evolving discussion during the Bazaar about gaps in care for pediatric neuropsychiatry, including challenges with providing care for transitional age youth and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders.  

Forensic Neuropsychiatry

SIG Chair: Hal Wortzel

This session welcomes participants' questions and sharing of their experiences in this fascinating subspecialty. Participants are encouraged to come with questions concerning the medicolegal process. Discussions will highlight the importance of neuropsychiatry in helping understand cases when deciding legal outcomes. 


SIG Chair: Michael Schrift

The Catatonia Special Interest Group is for attendees who wish to have more information about the diagnosis, evaluation, and case-based management of patients with catatonia. Typically, attendees discuss dilemmas they might have in the diagnosis and management of their patients suffering from catatonia. In addition, future research ideas regarding catatonia will be discussed as well.


SIG Chair: James “Trey” Bateman 

The Dementia SIG group is a gathering place for those with an interest in caring for primary neurocognitive disorders. Whether dementia represents the primary focus of your clinical practice or just a small part of it, the Dementia SIG welcomes you.  Plan for an ongoing/evolving discussion during the Bazaar, to include evolving issues with COVID, tele-cog testing, any ongoing research programs, and opportunities for collaboration. And as always, any interesting cases can be brought up!

Functional Neurologic Disorder

SIG Chair: Caitlin Adams 

The FND SIG will consist of an informal discussion of clinical and research interests in functional neurological disorders. This will present an opportunity to meet others with varied experience in the field of FND in hopes of inspiring neuropsychiatrists’ further participation. Case discussions, clinical dilemmas, and research related questions are welcome.


SIG Chair: Jordan Anderson

The Long COVID SIG group will offer a chance for ANPA members to come together over shared interest in the neuropsychiatric aspects of a fascinating new phenomenon, Long COVID, a.k.a. Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS CoV2 (PASC). This brand-new SIG is chaired by a dual trained neurologist-psychiatrist with unique clinical experience running a Long COVID Neuropsychiatry clinic since 2021. Please visit the Long COVID SIG at the ANPA Bazaar to share experiences and discuss means of spreading awareness and knowledge on the topic, recent publications and their impact on clinical practice, potential research project collaboration, public health aspects, and more.


SIG Co-Chairs: Kathy Niu, Joey Cooper, and Richard Cowles

This SIG meets to discuss the best ways to teach neuroimaging, review interesting cases, and collaborate on academic projects.

Early Career Committee

Committee Co-Chairs: Elizabeth DeGrush and Shawn Smyth

"Challenges, Successes, and the Awe: Your Behavioral Neurology/Neuropsychiatry Journey Has Begun!" - will plan for the difficulties people face in navigating their career paths, have time for Q&A , share success stories, and discuss interesting cases or moments that bring awe to the journey. The SIG will also brainstorm ideas on how to continue collaboration intermittently throughout the year in between ANPA meetings.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Committee Co-Chairs: David Arciniegas and Lindsey Gurin

The mission of the American Neuropsychiatric Association TBI Special Interest Group (ANPA TBI SIG) is to provide a forum for ANPA members to exchange information, develop educational and other scholarly activities by and for ANPA members and others interested in this topic, and to create a network of like-minded colleagues within our association. Near-term project for the ANPA TBI SIG include regular (at least every other month) Zoom meetings for networking, education (i.e., webinars, research-in-progress updates), and scholarly activities. The latter will include developing a TBI neuropsychiatry syllabus for trainees and practitioners; collaboration with the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences on a TBI-focused Editor’s Choice: Curated Collection; development of JNCN Podcasts on TBI-focused articles published in that journal; and development of scholarly works addressing current topics in TBI neuropsychiatry. The ANPA TBI SIG is also seeking input from its members and the ANPA membership more generally on high-priority near-term TBI-focused projects that align with ANPA’s mission “to improve the lives of persons with disorders at the interface of psychiatry and neurology.”
