Society for Neuroscience


The Society for Neuroscience is committed to advancing understanding of the brain and nervous system by creating venues for sharing discoveries, providing professional development for neuroscientists, promoting public education and general education in neuroscience research, and informing legislators and other policymakers about new developments.


The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) was founded in 1969 with 500 members and held its first annual meeting in Washington, DC, in 1971, with nearly 1,400 attendees. It began publishing The Journal of Neuroscience 10 years later. Today, SfN has nearly 42,000 members and attracts approximately 30,000 neuroscientists from around the world to its annual meeting.

SfN has more than 150 local chapters around the world, including 47 U.S. states and dozens of countries worldwide. Chapters serve SfN’s mission by advancing understanding of the brain and nervous system among the neuroscience community and the general public.
