Society for Neuroscience

The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) formed in 1969, is a society of scientists and clinical physicians with a collaborative focus on the study and treatment of human brain and nervous system disorders. SfN has more than 36,000 members, publishes peer-review journals, newsletters, news stories for the Web and conducts educational symposiums.
