BSCN Activities

Scientific Meetings

The Society holds three one-day ordinary scientific meetings each year open to members, and other interested parties by invitation. Details of forthcoming meetings can be found in the events page. It is customary for the Autumn meeting to be held in London.

Once every three years the society holds a week-long residential training course in Oxford

Occasional other scientifc meetings are arranged on themed subjects on an 'ad hoc' basis. These also appear on our events page

We also host the Association of Trainees in Clinical Neurophysiology (ATCN) and support their regular educational meetings which usually take place on the Thursday before a BSCN scientific meeting. You can email the ATCN directly at:
