About the International Neuromodulation Society (INS)
Welcome to the International Neuromodulation Society
The International Neuromodulation Society (INS) is a nonprofit group of clinicians, scientists and engineers dedicated to the scientific development and awareness of neuromodulation – the alteration of nerve activity through the delivery of electrical stimulation or chemical agents to targeted sites of the body. Founded in 1989 and based in San Francisco, CA, the INS educates and promotes the field through meetings, its MEDLINE-indexed, peer-reviewed journal Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface, and chapter websites.
Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface contains articles of the highest scientific caliber. The journal's sole purpose is to advance the basic and clinical science of the field of neuromodulation. It publishes scientific works, scientific reviews, and abstracts of papers accepted for review at national and international congresses.
The History of the International Neuromodulation Society
Mission, Vision and Goals of the International Neuromodulation SocietyThe Mission of the INS is to promote and disseminate the science, education, practice and accessibility of all aspects of neuromodulation. This multidisciplinary society believes that all scientists, doctors, bioengineers, professions allied to medicine and industry partners who have a specialist interest in neuromodulation can work with this society to share science and encourage best practice for the good of humanity.
The Vision of the INS is to harness all scientific, clinical and engineering endeavour throughout the world and to brand neuromodulation to encompass all implantable neurological technologies that through electrical or chemical means improve the function of the impaired individual.
The Goals of the INS are:
