MNS council and bylaws

The MNS is coordinated by a board of 10 council members among which an executive committee is selected, including a president, a general secretary, a treasurer (and their vice-persons). According to the MNS bylaws, 5 new councilors are elected by the general assembly held during the last Mediterranean Neuroscience Conference and remain in charge for maximum two consecutive terms of 2 years each (with a council thus fully renovated every two MNS conferences).

The current MNS Council and executive committee are composed by:
