The Korean Society for Brain and Neural Science (KSBNS) was founded in 1998. The KSBNS succeeds The Korean Society of Neuroscience and The Korean Society of Neurobiology which were established in 1992 and merged to found the KSBNS. The number of registered members in the KSBNS is more than 1,000 and their fields cover the whole range of neuroscience including basic and clinical neuroscience.
The annual meeting of the KSBNS is held every fall and has become the largest neuroscience meeting in Korea. The KSBNS hosted the 3rd Congress of FAONS (Federation of Asian-Oceania Neuroscience Societies) in 2002 and the 22nd Biennial Meeting of the ISN/APSN (International Society for Neurochemistry/Asian Pacific Society for Neurochemistry) Joint Meeting in 2009 and held the 14th annual meeting as a joint meeting with the MCCS-Asia (Molecular and Cellular Cognition Society-Asia) in 2011, globalizing Korea’s presence in the field of neuroscience.
The official journal, Experimental Neurobiology is published quarterly as an open access, peer-reviewed online journal. The journal aims to publish papers that present novel observations in all fields of neuroscience, encompassing cellular & molecular neuroscience, development/differentiation/plasticity, neurobiology of disease, systems/cognitive/behavioural neuroscience, drug development & industrial application, brain-machine interface, methodologies/tools, and clinical neuroscience. The journal is indexed/tracked/covered by PubMed, PubMed Central (PMC), Korea Med, Synapse, KoMCI and Google Scholar.
The KSBNS has been a major sponsor of World Brain Awareness Week every March since 2002 - the first year the event was held in Korea.
In 2014 this Korean society has got the 3rd Zeiss Award publication & 2nd Joseph Chang Research Award Publication.Read More»
