The National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN) was founded in 1975 as a membership organization established for individuals interested in the field of neuropsychology, a field within psychology focused on the practice and study of the relationship between the brain and behavior. With over 3,300 members in all states and 24 countries, NAN has developed into an organization that represents the diverse interests of scientist-practitioners, clinicians, and researchers in the field of neuropsychology.
