Introduction to the Federation of the European Societies of Neuropsychology



ESN 2004, Modena

From the very beginning, Neuropsychology has been an international enterprise with a strong European component. However, there has been little effort to bring together European researchers working in this area. Following a series of successful bilateral meetings, the Neuropsychological Societies of France, Germany, United Kingdom, and Italy decided to organize a joint meeting as the basis for a future European network of Neuropsychological Societies. This first meeting took place in Modena (Italy) form April 18th to April 20th, 2004. It saw the participation of more than 500 delegates representing the majority of European countries, including many delegates from Eastern Europe and a few participants from Asia, North and Central America. The meeting was opened by a welcome address by Ennio De Renzi who gave an historical photographic overview of the first steps of European Neuropsychology. The keynote lecture was delivered by Giacomo Rizzolatti, who presented an interesting review of recent progress in the understanding of the mirror-neuron system and its role in imitation and language. The conference programme included four plenary sessions, each organized by one of the four promoting Societies. In addition, several symposia, oral and poster sessions animated the meeting for a total of 300 presentations. The highlights of the four plenary sessions were published in Neurocase vol. 11 (2):145-155.

ESN 2006, Toulouse

The 2nd Meeting of the European Societies of Neuropsychology held in Toulouse in October


2006 gathered about 500 attendees from many European countries; 350 abstracts were
received among which oral presentations and posters were selected. The outcome of further on-site reviewing by members of the Scientific Committee ended up with a selection of 20 papers. Authors were offered the opportunity to submit these contributions as short papers in a special issue of Behavioural Neurology which has been issued in April 2008 (Behavioural Neurology, 2008; 19(1-2)). The program of the next meeting in Edinburgh as well the number and quality of submitted abstracts makes one foresee the first formal meeting of the Federation of the European Societies of Neuropsychology  as a major event in our multidisciplinary domain.
