Dr Eli Silber, Consultant Neurologist at Kings College Hospital London, talks about Mood Swings on 10th October 2003 in a LIVE online chat at 2-3pm (UK time).

Eli comes from South Africa and started his career as a Neurologist at Baragwanath Hospital (the largest hospital in the world). He came to the UK in 1997 when he took up the post of Senior Registrar at Charing Cross Hospital. He then went on to do research with Professor Richard Hughes at Guys Hospital into antibodies to axonal proteins in MS.

Since 2000 Dr Silber has been based at Kings College Hospital and runs the regional MS Clinic at both Kings as well as having a busy general neurology practice at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich.

Eli's special clinical interests are: long term care for people with MS including mood and cognitive problems. He is involved in the MS Society funded Palliative Care project and is interested in cannabis use amongst his MS patients. He is also interested in the neurological problems that occur at high altitudes.
