The American Association of Neuropathologists, Inc. (AANP) began in the early 1930's as a professional and educational organization representing American neuropathologists. It was incorporated in the State of Pennsylvania in May 1960. The AANP's purpose is to advance the science, teaching and training of the diseases of the nervous system and the practice of neuropathology. Currently, AANP has more than 800 members.

Official Journal

Since 1981 the official forum of the AANP has been the Journal of Neuropathology & Experimental Neurology, one of the premier neuroscience journals in the world.
