IAFNRThe International Academy for Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation was founded in 2010 to promote, protect and advance interdisciplinary scientific and clinical Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation Sciences at the national and international levels. We plan to be one of the fastest-growing, most respected and diverse organizations in the field world-wide.

MEMBER BENEFITS As a member of IAFNR, you will not only be voicing your commitment to the science and practice of Functional Neurology and Neurological Rehabilitation Sciences, but you will also receive the following benefits:

IAFNR - Journal

Functional Neurology, Rehabilitation, and Ergonomics published by Nova Press with Drs. Gerry Leisman and Robert Melillo as Editors-in-Chief. Stay up-to-date on the latest scientific research in Functional Neurology, as well as reports of trends in the field, special issues on pertinent topics, abstracts of the annual conference, and timely news of organizational activities. The Journal will be published four times yearly. The aim and scope of this interdisciplinary journal is to provide a forum for the fields of Functional Neurology, Rehabilitation Sciences, Neuropsychology, Clinical Neurology, Human Factors and Ergonomics, and vocational assessment and training to present critical ideas, theories, proof-of-concept for technology solutions, and data-based evaluative research to facilitate more effective functional development in children and adults. FNRE accepts review papers, articles of original research, data-based and controlled case studies pertaining to Functional Neurology, Man-Machine Interaction, Rehabilitation Sciences, brain-behavior relationships, and in applied cognitive neuroscience that relate to translational research. Engineering proof-of-concept applied to functional neurology as ergonomics are also welcome. FNRE also welcomes commentary on either the review papers or on original research as the journal intends to be an archival source of discussion of new advances in rehabilitation.

FNRE- Online

Academy members have the option of choosing online-only access to the journal as an alternative or in addition to receiving printed copies. All Members enjoy the benefits of full online access to our journal, whether or not they choose to receive them online-only. As an additional courtesy, all Members receive This Month in Functional Neurology, a monthly e-mail with links to Neuro-rehabilitation Sciences articles available online in advance of printing.
