Message from the 2019 INS Program Committee Chair


Neuropsychology is a melting pot, at the crossroads of neuroscience and behavioral health. To fully understand brain health and illness, we need to consider both neurobiological and psychological processes. We also need to consider developmental factors and the various environmental contexts within which individuals function. Drawing on these ideas, the theme for the 2019 Annual Meeting in New York City is: Embracing the Biopsychosocial Melting Pot. We welcome abstract submissions that represent the interdisciplinary nature of neuropsychology, as well as those that further our understanding of the brain-context relationships that help determine cognitive, emotional, social, and moral development and functioning. As always, we encourage submissions that offer unique insights into cognitive and affective neuroscience of healthy and disease states, innovations in behavioral measurement, and state-of-the-art treatment and rehabilitation approaches.
We couldn’t be more excited to be meeting in NYC, its own melting pot of people and cultures. We hope you’ll join us for a stellar scientific program and the virtually endless arts, cultural, and social opportunities that the Big Apple has to offer.
