TheISNRis a non-profit organization promoting the self-regulation of brain activity for healthier functioning through neurofeedback and biofeedback.

The structure of ISNR is divided into three functional areas–governance, programs and administration–and then further subdivided within each area, depending on the purpose and goals established by the Board (i.e., Public Relations and Outreach, Student Advocacy).

Governance: ISNR is governed by a Board of Directors.The board is accountable for the policies of ISNR and is given powers by the organizations' Articles of Incorporation. Our list of Board Members can be found at:

Administration: The Executive Director is responsible for overseeing all programs as well as for liaising with the Board and for carrying out their instructions, as well as for overseeing the people (all outside contractors) who run the programs for ISNR.

Programs: ISNR was founded to carry out the mission of promoting the self-regulation of brain activity for healthier functioning through neurofeedback and biofeedback. The organization is structured into various program areas to carry out this work and achieve its goals. One of the largest areas of focus is on gathering together the professionals in the field once a year for an annual conference.

Culture: ISNR’s culture can be best described as a social corporate culture that draws its strength from collaborative efforts, teamwork, and healthy, trusting relationships among the Board, the Executive Director and its network of outside vendors. In many ways ISNR is held together by a sense of meaning, identity and pride in promoting the overall mission of the organization.

ISNR is the world’s largest group of professionals involved in the practice, teaching, and research of neurofeedback. ISNR members are expected to adhere to the organization’s code of ethics, which provides an added measure of accountability and standards for the profession.  

ISNRU’s purpose is to offer expert training to current and future professionals year round with the ability to earn CE credits. As part of its commitment to supporting the development of effective neurofeedback training programs worldwide, ISNRU provides the hands on training and resources for neurofeedback education by experts in the various disciplines.

ISNR is also committed to supporting new developments in the field of neurofeedback by publishing a professional journal and newsletter and by producing a well-attended annual educational conference.
