About INS

INS Logo

The International Neuropsychological Society (INS) was founded in 1967 as a scientific and educational organization dedicated to enhancing communication among the scientific disciplines which contribute to the understanding of brain-behavior relationships. The Society currently has more than 4700 members throughout the world and from various areas of practice.

The mission of the International Neuropsychological Society is to promote the international and interdisciplinary study of brain-behavioral relationships throughout the lifespan. The Society’s emphasis is on science, education, and the applications of scientific knowledge.

Membership in the Society includes an online subscription to the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society: JINS, which is currently published ten times per year (with two additional, online-only supplements). The Society holds two meetings each year, including its Annual Meeting every February in North America, and its Mid-Year Meeting every July in a different location worldwide.

Individuals interested in joining INS may review available membership levels and qualifications on this page, or submit an online membership application here.

The Bylaws of INS were last modified in 2014 by vote of the INS membership.
