Professional Societies Related to Neuroscience, Neurophysiology & Neuromonitoring
AAET is a place for the Nerve Conduction technologist. A place to learn. A place to build confidence. A place for camaraderie. A place to get all your questions answered. We preserve human dignity, respect patients’ rights, and support the well-being of the patient under our care. We treat our patients like family, as we would like to be treated. We appreciate the importance of thoroughness in the performance of our duty, compassion with patients and the significance of the tasks we perform. We are there for our patients. We agree to adhere to the preservation of confidentiality of all medical and personal information of the patient. Finally, we strive to remain abreast of current technology and to study and apply scientific advances. We are AAET.
The ACNS is a professional association dedicated to fostering excellence in clinical neurophysiology and furthering the understanding of central and peripheral nervous system function in health and disease through education, research, and the provision of a forum for discussion and interaction.
The American Epilepsy Society is one of the oldest neurological professional organizations in this country. The Society seeks to promote interdisciplinary communications, scientific investigation and exchange of clinical information about epilepsy. Membership consists of clinicians, scientists investigating basic and clinical aspects of epilepsy, and other professionals interested in seizure disorders. Members represent both pediatric and adult aspects of epilepsy.
The ANA is a professional society of academic neurologists and neuroscientists devoted to advancing the goals of academic neurology; to training and educating neurologists and other physicians in the neurologic sciences; and to expanding both our understanding of diseases of the nervous system and our ability to treat them.
ASET provides leadership, advocacy and resources that promote professional excellence and quality patient care in neurodiagnostics. As a membership organization, ASET advances the field by serving member needs, defining and endorsing standards of practice, providing innovative educational opportunities, promoting the profession, and building coalitions in allied health and other communities of interest. Neurodiagnostics includes but is not limited to Electroencephalography (EEG), Evoked Potentials (EP), Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS), Polysomnography/Sleep technology (PSG), Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM), Long Term Monitoring (LTM), and Intensive Care Unit Continuous EEG Monitoring (ICU/cEEG).
The American Society of Neurophysiological Monitoring was founded in 1990 to serve the emerging field of neurophysiologic monitoring. The Society serves as the leading organization for the field of interventional neurophysiological assessment and monitoring. The Society:
- Fosters the growth and stature of neurophysiological monitoring as a profession.
- Provides a forum for education and dissemination of knowledge in the field.
- Develops quality standards for practice and training.
- Builds partnerships and coalitions with allied professionals.
The CANM mission is to promote the field of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring and foster the development of the profession through education and certification, so as to provide optimum patient care. Our vision is to be recognized as the united voice for the profession of neurophysiological monitoring in Canada.
The International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN) has members operating in 58 countries globally. In so doing, the main goal of the IFCN is to strive to promote education and the attainment of the highest level of knowledge and understanding in the field of Clinical Neurophysiology. This is the main objective, but in its pursuit, other goals of the IFCN include:
- To foster and encourage scientific research, investigation and demonstration in the field of Clinical Neurophysiology.
- To improve the quality of instruction in the professions dealing with these sciences.
- To supply information to cooperate with and to advise, through its committees, any society, institution or individuals interested in these problems.
- To propose standards, agreements and regulations and to give advice concerning criteria for the best apparatus, methods, techniques and for the interpretation of results.
- To establish and maintain an efficient collaboration with international and national learned societies, governmental organizations, professional associations and other groups, societies, institutions and individuals who contribute to progress in the field of Clinical Neurophysiology.
The purpose of the ISIN is the pursuit of the advancement of excellence in intra and perioperative neurophysiology by:
- Conducting regular meeting of the ISIN and joint meetings with related societies (neurosurgery, cardiovascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, ETN surgery, endovascular radiology, anesthesiology, neurophysiology…).
- Providing education in Intraoperative Neurophysiology by:
- Regular courses and conferences.
- Scientific communication.
- Promoting research in Neurophysiology.
- Representing Intra and peri-operative Neurophysiology in the world.
- Advancing standards of care for patients undergoing surgical procedures associated with significant risk of neurological injury.
The North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS) is dedicated to being the premier organization representing neuromodulation. NANS promotes multidisciplinary collaboration among clinicians, scientists, engineers, and others to advance neuromodulation through education, research, innovation and advocacy. Through these efforts NANS seeks to promote and advance the highest quality patient care.
The Society for Neuroscience is the world’s largest organization of scientists and physicians devoted to understanding the brain and nervous system. The nonprofit organization, founded in 1969, now has nearly 42,000 members in more than 90 countries and 130 chapters worldwide.
The Western Society of END Technologists is the oldest society of its kind in the United States. It was founded to help in the continuing education of Electrodiagnostic technologists in the western states.
