The European Brain and Behaviour Society (EBBS) is a scientific society founded in 1968[1] whose stated purpose is the exchange of information between European scientists interested in the relationships between brain mechanisms and behaviour.[2] It is the oldest neuroscience society in Europe. Notable past presidents include Lawrence Weiskrantz, Giacomo Rizzolatti, Marc Jeannerod, John Aggleton, and Barry Everitt; the current president is Francesca Cirulli.[3] The EBBS is a founding member of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies. In years that there are no federation meetings, EBBS organises a stand-alone meeting, occasionally together with the European Behavioural Pharmacology Society.[4]
