The International Neuromodulation Society
The Fastest-Growing, Worldwide Multidisciplinary Body Devoted to Building Knowledge of Neuromodulation
The International Neuromodulation Society (INS) is a non-profit group of clinicians, scientists and engineers dedicated to the scientific development and awareness of neuromodulation – the alteration of nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents, to specific neurological sites in the body. The San Francisco-based INS was formed in 1989 and educates and promotes the field through meetings, its peer-reviewed journal Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface, explanatory content, and chapter websites. The INS also provides information for patients and produces rolling news briefs about this rapidly evolving field.
The INS Peer-Reviewed Journal – 8 Issues a Year
The INS journal Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface has a growing Impact Factor and is indexed in Index Medicus, MEDLINE and Pubmed from its first issue in 1998. Members may log in to the members-only section to read the journal online.
Medical Professionals can learn about various considerations concerning neuromodulation and clinic contacts. Once your preliminary questions have been answered, please use the Contact Us facility to find out more and to discuss specific objectives. Others may simply wish to join the INS and one of its related chapter societies, please use the Membership Application.
Clinical trials that involve a wide range of emerging neuromodulation approaches are listed on our Research page. Neuromodulation clinical trials address symptom control through nerve stimulation in such condition categories as:
If you are not a medical professional and you are searching for information about neuromodulation and how these types of treatment could benefit a specific condition such as treatment-resistant headache or other chronic pain syndromes, you may find the sections titled Therapies, About Neuromodulation or FAQs particularly helpful.

Feb. 24, 2017 - A study of 16 patients with anorexia nervosa who had deep brain stimulation to their subcallosal cingulate showed the intervention was safe and might help improve their symptoms, according to data published in The Lancet Psychiatry. (Medical Xpress)
Feb. 23, 2017 - International Neuromodulation Society member Frank Huygen, MD, PhD and colleagues report in the European Journal of Pain that a multi-center, cross-over trial of five different types of stimulation in 29 patients with complex regional pain syndrome showed 48% preferred the standard frequency of stimulation and 54% preferred a non-standard one.
