Dr Steven Allder is a leading Consultant Neurologist currently working at Re:Cognition Health in London, specialising in the assessment of patients with traumatic brain injury. He is noted as being the first doctor to establish an emotion-focused service for medically unexplained neurological symptoms. Dr Allder is skilled in the management of acute neurological emergencies, in particular, cerebrovascular disease and traumatic brain injury. He has previously run a general neurology outpatient practice during his NHS work and had specific sub-specialist interest in neuro-otology (assessment of dizzy patients), neurological pain syndromes and medically unexplained symptoms. Alongside this clinical work, Dr Allder is embarking on a research project looking at the long-term impact of autonomic responses provoked by acute traumatic injuries; specifically, how certain autonomic responses to acute trauma set up changes in underlying brain networks that create and maintain long-term neurological and pain syndromes.
