The strength of IASP lies in the diversity of the clinical expertise of the membership. It is critically important for clinicians and researchers with specific interests to have a forum to discuss highly specific issues in depth. Membership in SIGs is open only to members of IASP. Join the NeuPSIG to get more value from your IASP membership.
