NYNG’s activities include presenting public lectures and conferences, sometimes in collaboration with other non-profit organizations such as The New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS).
Bilingual Task Force
Bilingual Task Force examines problems inherent in providing neuropsychological services for non-English speaking or bilingual individuals.
Annual A.L. Benton Lecture
Its annual Benton Lecture, named after A.L. Benton whose 1986 lecture at a joint meeting of NYNG and NYAS began NYNG’s effort to bring some the contributors to modern neuropsychology to a New York audience.
NYNG’s first conference in the spring of 1980 has been followed by annual spring conferences, but one year NYNG had an extra conference in the fall, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of publication of Freud’s Project for a Scientific Psychology: May 15, 1998 (it was the basis for one of the three NYAS annals based on NYNG conferences)Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences)
In early years, NYNG had informal no-registration, no fee, meetings featuring a guest lecturer and discussion by those attending. These have been few after NYAS sold its east side townhouse and moved to the World Trade Center but might be revived if free or easily affordable meeting places can be found.
Offerings, especially for students, include annual “Training Fairs” at which representatives of institutions with internships, externships, or practicums can describe their programs and talk informally with students seeking such training.
NYNG also schedules informal “socializing” evenings, sometimes in collaboration with other groups.
