Professor Robert Hardy, Department of Pharmacology, UCL School of Pharmacy
Startle disease/hyperekplexia is a rare but potentially fatal human disorder characterised by exaggerated startle reflexes and muscle stiffness in response to sudden unexpected stimuli. The exaggerated startle response can persist into adulthood, leading to unprotected falls and injuries.
Fortunately, startle disease can be treated and Professor Robert Hardy will discuss how the frequency of mutations in animals suggests that in some species, startle disease has made the transition from being a rare disorder to one that is extremely common.
