This meeting was attended by more than 10,000 professionals from across the globe, and focused on educational programs and cutting edge research.

The AAN Meeting featured a robust Science Program with several new features. The Neuroscience in the Clinic Sessions brought together clinicians and scientists for case discussions that integrated research and practice. There was an Emerging Science section emphasizing neuroscience research of an extraordinary nature warranting expedited publication, and Experiential Learning Areas for interactive education with real world experiences including advocacy and medical research.
