The Israel Society for Neuroscience (ISFN) is a registered non-profit organization that was founded in 1992 by several leading Israeli neuroscientists. The ISFN helps in fostering the public awareness throughout the country to latest advances in brain research and how brain disorders can be diagnosed and treated. This goal is achieved by presentations given in lay terms by Society members and students who volunteer as speakers in Community Centers, High Schools and Cafés during the "Brain Awareness Week" - an event held around the world during March each year. ISFN is the representative body in Israel of recent developments in neuroscience research and their implications. It works closely with The Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the various research institutes and universities, Brain Research Centers as well as other international scientific societies such as the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), and European Dana Alliance for the Brain.
