Professor Jonathan Cole

President’s Letter February 2024

In the first letter of 2024 I am pleased to begin by welcoming our four new member societies to the IFCN fold. We hope they will enjoy the benefits of membership which are to be found on our website and of course contribute their own perspectives to our federation in future.

The new members are: The Algerian Association of Clinical Neurophysiology and Functional Explorations of the Nervous System, The Society of Clinical Neurophysiology of Bangladesh, The Latvian Association of Clinical Neurophysiology and the Lithuanian Clinical Society of Clinical Neurophysiology and Neurosonology. A warm welcome to them all!

Dr. Robert Chen will present: Electrophysiological Assessment of Movement Disorders

While diagnosis of movement disorders is largely based on clinical assessment, electrophysiological studies can assist in the diagnosis in selected cases. The lecture will outline the use of neurophysiological assessment in the diagnosis of different movement disorders including tremor, myoclonus and functional movement disorders using techniques such as multichannel surface EMG, EEG-EMG backaveraging and accelerometry. The participants will gain knowledge on the recording and analysis techniques used, as well as the clinical utility and limitations of these assessments.

To Register

IFCN Publications

The IFCN has two official journals Clinical Neurophysiology and Clinical Neurophysiology Practice.

Clinical Neurophysiology Journal

Clinical Neurophysiology Journal
Volume 160 (April 2024)

Clinical Neurophysiology is the official journal of IFCN and its member Societies. It has been adopted as the official journal of the Italian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology, the Czech Society of Clinical Neurophysiology, the Brazilian Society of Clinical Neurophysiology and the International Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology.

Clinical Neurophysiology is dedicated to publishing scholarly reports on the pathophysiology underlying diseases of the peripheral and central nervous system of humans.

Clinical Neurophysiology Practice Journal

Clinical Neurophysiology Practice (CNP) is a new Open Access journal that focuses on clinical practice issues in clinical neurophysiology including relevant new research, case reports or clinical series, normal values and didactic reviews. It complements Clinical Neurophysiology which focuses on innovative research in the specialty. It has a role in supporting established clinical practice, and an educational role for trainees, technicians and practitioners.

Clinical Neurophysiology Practice (CNP)

Who We Are

The International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN) has 68 member societies in 65 countries.

The IFCN mission is to promote best practice in clinical neurophysiology through education and research throughout the world. And our vision is to improve healthcare worldwide by understanding the nervous system and optimizing the diagnosis and treatment of its disorders through clinical neurophysiology.

Who We Are

Annual EEGonline Distance Learning Programme
