International Neuropsychological Society

We look forward to participating in this year’s INS conference in Washington, DC.  If you will be at INS 2018 and want to meet with one of our representatives, please contact us ahead of time to arrange a time and place to meet.  We will be participating directly in the conference, so we will be around at social events, coffee breaks, poster sessions, and so on.  We look forward to meeting you. If you would like to set a time to meet with Lloyd Smith, our representative at INS 2018, please drop us a line!

The 51st Anniversary of the International Neuropsychological Society (INS) marks an exciting and new chapter for the organization to examine the status quo of clinical neuropsychology advocacy, education, practice, and research, and begin to lay the foundation for moving toward the next century! Such progressive thinking inspired the 2018 Annual Meeting theme in Washington, DC, which is: Connecting the Present to the Future.

 Keynote Speakers

Among our Keynote Speakers for the 2018 Annual Meeting will be:

  • Dr. Michael Kopelman, INS President
  • Dr. Sarah Lisanby, an internationally recognized neuropsychiatric authority in neuromodulation development and Director of the National Institute of Mental Health’s Division of Translational Research
  • Dr. Earl Miller, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and global leader on the neural basis of complex executive functions
  • Dr. Miguel Nicolelis, a pioneer of the brain-machine interface and neuroprosthetics and named as one of 100 Leading Global Thinkers of 2015 by Foreign Policy Magazine
  • Dr. Anne-Lise Pitel, Assistant Professor at the University of Caen and rising star in Korsakoff’s syndrome diagnostics and treatment

The Birch Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Mieke Verfaellie, a leader in cognitive neuroscience who has advanced the understanding of the cognitive and neural bases of various forms of human memory.

The second annual Edith Kaplan Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Vilayanur Ramachandran, a neuroscientist who is world renowned for his research on the neural basis of cognition and language, author of The Tell-Tell Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Quest for What Makes us Human, and according to Time magazine is “one of the most influential people in the world.”

Invited Symposia

Invited symposia adhere to and advance the meeting theme of moving toward to the future. These symposia topics include:

  • Inclusion and diversity in clinical neuropsychology, chaired by Dr. April Thames
  • Genotypes and phenotypes of attention deficit hyperactive disorder across the lifespan, chaired by Dr. Barbara Franke
  • Reexamining multiple trace theory, chaired by Dr. Morris Moscovitch
  • Neurocognitive function in aerospace and aeronautics, chaired by Dr. Robert Kane
  • Neuropolitics, chaired by Dr. Laura Cram
