between investigators in Europe. The ESCAN kick-off meeting (10-12 December 2009, Amsterdam) was the first public manifestation of the society. 70 participants from all over Europe attended 20 scientific presentations covering the breadth of cognitive and affective neuroscience, from consciousness, via vision and cognitive processes, their development and brain-machine-interfaces, to
affective neuroscience and its clinical applications. Following this first meeting, the society was officially created.
conference in Marseille will be the first ESCAN conference of the officially created society.

cognitive and affective neuroscience, provided they have a close
relationship to behavior, affect and cognition in humans. Dependent

all types, Autonomous Nervous System measures and other bodily measurements.
