As part of its mission to promote interdisciplinary debate on all 
aspects of psychopathology InterPsych would like to 
encourage applications from neuroscience professionals wishing to 
establish new discussion fora as part of the organization, a non-
profit making body (501(c)3 registered in the State of New York.
InterPsych will shortly have its own server and a WWW site to be 
called the InterPsych Virtual Campus. We would welcome your 
suggestions as to how these facilites can best be put at the disposal 
of neuroscientists in medicine, academia, research, and all other 
relevant areas.

Could those who are interested please send detailed proposals and a 
cv to myself, or the InterPsych Forum Manager, Sunkyo Kwon 
fu03c2dj at fub46.zedat.fu-berlin.de.

Regards

Ian Pitchford
Secretary, InterPsych Board of Directors

InterPsych forums (aka mailing lists) are one way mental health
and behavioural science professionals, students, and interested
others keep up with discourse in their fields, as well as keeping
up with each other.

Below find a listing of InterPsych forums which use e-mail. 
Monthly, you'll receive InterPsych's newsletter which will keep
you informed of things going on around InterPsych, as well as
inform you of other InterPsych tools and programs available to
