Welcome to the Website of the Neuroscience Group of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR). Our group includes 300 members, basic scientists, teachers, specialists, clinicians and students from all over the world. Oral Neuroscience includes research on the role of the nervous system in oral-facial function and in the diagnosis and treatment of oral-facial neural and muscular disorders.
Our mission is to provide a focus and forum within the IADR for the exchange of scientific information related to neuroscience research, to facilitate the exchange of ideas in this field, to promote the publication of research findings, to attract young dental scientists into neuroscience research and to help disseminate to the lay public research findings in this area.

In 2017, the former Bylaws & Constitution of the Neuroscience Group was replaced with the IADR Governing Handbook that applies to all Scientific Groups and Networks. To facilitate the transfer of knowledge about the Neuroscience Group's specific traditions to future leadership and members, it was suggested that the former bylaws should be transformed into the Neuroscience Group Guidelines, which should be seen as a non-binding supplement to the IADR Governing Handbook.
A draft of the Neuroscience Group Guidelines is now available for review and open for comments and suggestions are welcome. Please click here to access the draft. Changes from the original bylaws are marked with red font and explanatory comments are included.
Please send your comments or suggestions for change to Maria Pigg, President of the Neuroscience Group, firstname.lastname@example.org before May 1, 2020.
A final version of the document will be prepared and presented for approval in the next business meeting on March 19, 2020 (at the IADR General Session in Washington D.C.).
