Clinical EEG and Neuroscience

Clinical EEG and Neuroscience Will Publish First Issue with SAGE January 2012
2010 Impact Factor: 1.325 | MEDLINE

Clinical EEG and Neuroscience conveys clinically relevant research and development in electroencephalography and neuroscience. Original articles on any aspect of clinical EEG or related work in allied fields are invited for publication. It is the official journal of the EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS).

The primary goal of ECNS is to further the clinical practice of classic electroencephalography (EEG), quantitative EEG (QEEG), evoked potentials, magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), deep brain stimulation (DBS), polysomnography (sleep EEG), and EEG Neurofeedback from the professional, scientific, and economic standpoints. The dynamic nature of this society is attested to by the increasing numbers of presentations at meetings that employ newer methods of assessing brain function, e.g., SPECT, PET, functional MRI.
