Defining the future of neurology - Japan, Asia and Oceania

      On behalf of the Japanese Society of Neurology (JSN) and Local Organizing Committee, we are very proud to host the 23rd World Congress of Neurology (WCN) 2017 in Kyoto. In 1902 the old Japanese Society of Neurology (JSN) was established by neurologists and psychiatrists but neurological activity appeared to decline and JSN changed its name to the Japanese Society of Psychiatry and Neurology (JSPN) in 1935. After the World War II, Japanese neurologists stimulated by new information of neurology wanted their own society independent of JSPN and were finally successful to establish the Japanese Society of Clinical Neurology in 1959 thanks to great support of the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) and others. The Society’s name returned to JSN in 1963 and the new JSN has evolved into a large society currently with 8,770 members.
