JSCN Information


The Japanese Society of Child Neurology (JSCN) was founded in 1961. Publication of its official journal in Japanese, "No To Hattatsu", began in 1969, and its official journal in English, "Brain & Development", was first published in 1979. Since 2007 the society has been reorganized as a limited liability nonprofits mutual benefit corporation for further development.

JSCN is among the largest affiliate societies of the Japan Pediatric Association. The current number of full members is around 3500. These are grouped into nine local chapters (Kyushu, Chugoku-Shikoku, Kinki, Tokai, Hokuriku, Koshin-etsu, Kanto, Tohoku and Hokkaido), each of which holds its own annual meeting once or twice a year. The General Assembly of JSCN is held once a year, usually in May or June. The average number of participants has been around 1500, with approximately 400 free papers, plenary lectures, and invited lectures. The subjects of these papers and lectures encompass almost every aspect of child neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine, and related basic sciences such as molecular biology, neurophysiology, neuropathology, and neuropharmacology.
