The European Society for Neurochemistry (ESN) is a professional society for neurochemists and neuroscientists from Europe whose research concerns the role and interactions of small molecules in the function, and pathology of the nervous system.
In the years before the establishment of the ESN, many European Neurochemists (from Biochemistry, Physiology, Neurology and related disciplines) were centrally involved in the development of the subject, for example in the discussions which led to the establishment of the Journal of Neurochemistry in 1956 and especially in the formation of the International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN) in 1967. In the same year as the foundation of ISN (1967), the Neurochemical Group of the British Biochemical Society was established, many of its meetings with an international and particularly European flavour.
During the years 1974 to 1975, in particular at a meeting of clinical neurochemists organised by Armand Lowenthal in Brussels in 1974, many participants expressed the need in Europe for a Society of Neurochemistry which would not only provide a forum for exchanging ideas and new developments in the subject, but also provide a vehicle for strong contact between clinically oriented and basic neurochemists. The various views were finally co–coordinated at a meeting organised by Lars Svennerholm at the Billinghus conference centre in Skovde, Sweden, in May 1975. Some general principles were agreed: that it should be open to members from all European countries, East and West, who were interested in Neurochemistry and allied subjects, and that it should pay special attention to clinical and applied aspects of the subject.
ISN individuals are researchers and doctors who are dynamic in the field of neurochemistry, cell and sub-atomic neuroscience or related zones and expects to encourage the overall progression of neurochemistry and related neuroscience controls; to cultivate the training and advancement of neuroscientists, especially of youthful and rising examiners, and to scatter data about neurochemistry and neurochemists' exercises all through the world.
ISN distributes The Journal of Neurochemistry (JNC), one of the main hotspots for examination into all parts of neuroscience, with a specific spotlight on atomic, cell and biochemical parts of the sensory system, the pathogenesis of neurological issue and the advancement of ailment particular biomarkers.
ISN bolsters the neuroscience group, interfacing individuals around the world and crosswise over strengths.Read More»
