Further, we are proud to be enabled by Yasmin Itil Leland to announce for the first time the ‘Prof. Dr. Turan M. Itil, MD, FAPA, FACNP Memorial Grant’, which is aimed at supporting high-quality EEG scientists, future Neuropsychiatrists, Psychopharmacologists, Electrophysiologists and inventors as he was in life to participate and present at the IPEG biennial International Symposium and Training course. More information on this grant will follow.


The IPEG is a professional association for scientists and researchers actively involved in electrophysiological brain research in preclinical and clinical pharmacology, neurotoxicology, personalized medicine and related areas of interest.

The acronym IPEG stands for International Pharmaco-EEG Society and the IPEG was established in 1980 (history). IPEG members include active members, junior and senior members, corporate members and honorary members. For membership details and becoming a member please go to the subscription page.
