The ICNS is a professional association dedicated to fostering excellence in clinical neurophysiology and furthering the understanding of nervous system function in health and disease through education, research, and the provision of a forum for discussion and interaction.

The International Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ICNS) (for members from non-affiliated countries) is a member society of IFCN as approved by the General Assembly of the IFCN in August 2008.

The Society promotes membership to individuals who either come from countries who do not have affiliated societies, or who do not qualify to belong to existing IFCN member societies. The ICNS’s aim is to complement the purpose of the IFCN which is to foster excellence in clinical neurophysiology.

ICNS Goals

  • Promote personal contact between investigators and clinical neurophysiology and closely related fields, between the society and other similar societies through the world through the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology, thus facilitating exchange of scientific and professional information and opinions;
  • Further the greater understanding and knowledge of clinical neurophysiology and disorders for which it is applied;
  • Arrange for the exchange of journals or other written materials in these fields;
  • Assist in the formation of committees for evaluation of standards, techniques, procedures, education, training or qualification of physicians or technologists; and
  • Achieve high standards for the clinical practice of clinical neurophysiology.
