Where surgeons
and scientists

INSA (formerly AAIM) was founded and registered in 2015 and is the Asia Pacific region’s only society specifically created for practitioners, academics and students of intraoperative neurophysiology. As we steer towards regulation and accreditation in Australasia, we welcome and encourage all healthcare professionals that have an interest in intraoperative neurophysiology to join the discussion to establish best-practice techniques and policies for this region.

Near-term goals

(1) Distinguish INSA as a viable and an independent source of education, information and networking for professionals involved in intraoperative neurophysiology.

(2) Increase the exposure for neuroscientists, medical practitioners and healthcare professionals in APAC to discover principles and practice of intraoperative neurophysiology.

(3) Encourage those actively engaged in intraoperative neurophysiology in APAC to work towards peer-reviewed publication and encourage collaborative partnerships between institutions.

(4) To explore the translational skills of neurophysiologists as it relates to brain computer interfaces and neuromodulation technologies, which are developed as part of multidisciplinary teams.



INSA was established to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and exchange of ideas as to how we can best regulate practitioners of intraoperative neurophysiology.

Our Executive Council

We are driven towards establishing a meaningful portal for education and networking for professionals involved in intraoperative neurophysiology.
