Welcome to the ASNR website!

The ASNR is a dynamic, rapidly growing, highly interdisciplinary society whose aim is to foster research in neurorehabilitation and neural repair, and the translation of this research into better rehabilitative care of patients with a variety of neurological disorders. A major activity of the ASNR is our annual scientific meeting – in 2014, as it was in 2013, this meeting will be a satellite of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN). This year, the ASNR meeting will again be in conjunction with the SfN satellite on Computational Motor Control, and will take place in Washington, DC on November 13-14. Our society’s outstanding journal, Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, has grown by leaps and bounds and is a top-ranking journal in rehabilitation. I encourage you to browse our website, check out our journal, become an ASNR member and attend our annual meetings.

ASNR Annual Meeting
Washington DC
November 13 and 14, 2014

The annual meeting will be held in conjunction with the Society for Neuroscience meeting.

ASNR is excited to be bringing the ASNR Annual Meeting to SfN as a satellite meeting.  This one day meeting is focused on advances in neurorehabilitation research that are ripe for clinical translation, providing opportunities to share knowledge, experience and developments in the field.    All of the sessions will address methods and concepts applicable across several neurological disease entities. The scientific program will include distinguished invited speakers, engaging symposia, and a poster reception.  For those with a particular interest in neurorehabilitation of motor deficits, there is a Translational and Computational Motor Control satellite the following day.
