About the INS

The International Neuropsychological Society (INS) is a multidisciplinary, international organisation dedicated to enhancing communication among the scientific disciplines that contribute to the understanding of brain-behaviour relationships and to promoting the international and interdisciplinary study of these relationships throughout the lifespan. The Society’s emphasis is on science, education, and the applications of scientific knowledge.

Founded in 1967, INS now has more than 4800 members representing more than 60 different countries worldwide. INS members include cognitive and clinical neuropsychologists and psychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, speech language pathologists, and specialists of related disciplines. They include esteemed scientists and clinicians from the world’s most prestigious universities and institutions, private practitioners, and trainees just embarking on their careers.

INS Annual and Mid-Year Meetings/Congresses

INS holds two meetings/congresses per year that provide a venue for cognitive and clinical neuroscientists from around the world to share their research and increase their understanding of the driving forces behind cognition and behaviour.

The INS Annual Meeting/Congress is held in North America every February and the INS Mid-Year Meeting/Congress is held every July. Each meeting offers three to four days of scientific and continuing education programming. Both INS meetings are open to members and non-members, and to professionals and trainees of all levels. Attendees represent neuropsychology and a variety of other disciplines.
