During meetings in Berlin, organized by Stille and Hermann to develop guidelines for pharmaco-EEG analysis, the IPEG was established in 1980, followed by its first formal meeting in 1982 and the designation of Neuropsychobiology as its official scientific journal.
The IPEG organizes a biennial meeting that includes an international scientific Symposium as well as Training Course for new and advanced researchers in this field.
