About the ANA and the Neuro Network

From advances in stroke and dementia to movement disorders and epilepsy, the American Neurological Association has been at the forefront of research and practice since 1875 as the premier professional society of academic neurologists and neuroscientists devoted to understanding and treating diseases of the nervous system.

For over 140 years, the ANA has counted the world’s leading academic neurologists among its members. In 2015, the association expanded its membership to include students and trainees to prepare the next generation of clinician-researchers for success.

The ANA offers CME-granting online education through its On-Demand Education Center (OnDEC), its MentorLink platform, and an online Memory Bank archive documenting the evolution of the society and the practice of neurology.

Our Mission

The American Neurological Association is a professional society of academic neurologists and neuroscientists devoted to advancing the goals of academic neurology; to training and educating neurologists and other physicians in the neurologic sciences; to expanding both our understanding of diseases of the nervous system and our ability to treat them.

Neuro Network

The ANA Neuro Network is an online community for ANA academic neurologists and neuroscientists. While this is a new member benefit, all ANA Annual Meeting registrants, ANA members, and non-member registrants alike, will have access to the Neuro Network for the duration of the meeting to share ideas, ask questions, and connect over the groundbreaking research presented at this year's Virtual Annual Meeting.

We encourage you to join the ANA to maintain your access to the ANA Neuro Network, as well as enjoy the ANA's many other member benefits, following ANA2020.
