EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS)

In 1998 the American Medical EEG Association (AMEEGA) and the American Psychiatric Electrophysiology Association (APEA) merged to form the EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS).

The primary goal of ECNS is to further the clinical practice of classic electroencephalography (EEG), quantitative EEG (QEEG), evoked potentials, magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), deep brain stimulation (DBS), polysomnography (sleep EEG), and EEG Neurofeedback from the professional, scientific, and economic standpoints. The dynamic nature of this society is attested to by the increasing numbers of presentations at meetings that employ newer methods of assessing brain function, e.g., SPECT, PET, functional MRI.

The ECNS is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to disseminating knowledge regarding the latest scientific advances in the above mentioned fields of electrophysiology as they relate to the understanding, treatment, and prevention of Neurobehavioral disorders including, but not limited to, head injury, epilepsy, pain syndromes, movement disorders, cerebrovascular disorders, metabolic and degenerative disorders, thought disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality and substance dependence disorders.

What do you gain by joining the EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS)?

The society membership includes experts in neurology, psychiatry, psychology and rehabilitation involved in translational research and clinical developments in the field of behavioural neuropsychiatry.

Members gain both formal and informal access to cutting edge information on the understanding, treatment, and prevention of neurobehavioral disorders including, but not limited to, head injury, epilepsy, pain syndromes, movement disorders, cerebrovascular disorders, metabolic and degenerative disorders, thought disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, personality and substance dependence disorders.

Both MD and PhD experts in clinical electrophysiology and imaging techniques are at the helm and are actively teaching courses of ECNS. In addition to classic electroencephalography (EEG), quantitative EEG (QEEG), evoked potentials, magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), deep brain stimulation (DBS), polysomnography (sleep EEG), and EEG neurofeedback are taught. Instructions are professional and new developments are taught from scientific and economic standpoints.

In recent years more and more of our courses have been devoted to the integration between established eletrophysiologic techniques and clinical use of newer methods of assessing brain function, e.g., SPECT, PET and most notably functional MRI.

Our congresses are informal to allow comfortable, easy access to the experts. If you are in an academic or teaching setting, experts are able to provide particular recommendations for experimental design for research and references for course material. The Society supports a number of young investigators to attend the annual congress at which their poster presentations were accepted.

Our society is keenly aware of the newly created subspecialty board in behavioural neurology. We are planning to provide educational courses which will include a faculty of experts in behavioural neurology, biological psychiatry and cognitive neuroscience.

Members have a free subscription to the journal of the Society: “Clinical EEG and Neuroscience”.

It should be noted that ECNS membership fees are reasonably low. The Society is open to MD-s and non-MD clinical neuroscientists as well as corporations that have contributed significantly to the use and application of instrumental techniques in behavioral neurology. Such members gain intellectual benefits through the society's open exchange of ideas.
