The New York Neuropsychology Group (NYNG) is a multidisciplinary nonprofit scientific and educational organization that was founded in 1979 in order to provide a forum for the discussion of brain-behavior relationships.
Since its foundation, NYNG has held/sponsored numerous events within the New York metropolitan region, including the Annual Spring Conference (now named the Frank LeFever Annual Spring Conference in honor of NYNG’s first president) and the Annual Arthur Benton Lecture.
NYNG’s first conference was held in the spring of 1980 and has been followed by annual spring conferences.
The Annual Benton Lecture is named after A.L. Benton whose 1986 lecture at a joint meeting of NYNG and NYAS began NYNG’s effort to bring some of the contributors to modern neuropsychology to a New York audience.
