The Japanese Society of Neurology (JSN) is an academic association of clinical neurologists and neuroscientists. It aims to contribute to the development of neuroscience and neurology and work for the treatment and care of patients with neurological diseases, with mutual cooperation not only among members but also with individuals involved in related academic and practical fields in Japan and abroad.
As of May 2016, the society had 8,500 members, the majority of whom were neurologists and 5,400 of whom were board-certified neurologists. The President is Dr. Ryosuke Takahashi, Professor of Neurology, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine.
JSN publishes two official journals: Rinsho Shinkeigaku (Clinical Neurology), which is published monthly in Japanese with English abstracts since 1960, and Neurology and Clinical Neuroscience, which is published bimonthly in English since 2013. JSN holds an annual academic meeting for all members together with the assembly of delegates once a year. Seven regional branches exist under JSN, and each of them holds local meetings two to four times a year.
