The present report is the result of discussions between the members of the COST Ad Hoc Working Party on Neuroscience Co-ordination in Europe. The Working Party was charged with the following tasks:

- To identify the state of the art of neurosciences in Europe;
- Draw an inventory of activities under way, possibly with the help of the Commission services;
- Prepare the ground for research in neuroscience to be carried out in the different cooperative bodies in Europe by recommending future useful areas of joint research and the most appropriate bodies to undertake the work.

Twelve particularly important subjects in neuroscience were selected. Each member of the COST Senior Official Committee was assigned to write one or two chapters of the report to give a survey of the present activity in the field and propose possible priority areas for collaborative ventures between neuroscience laboratories in Europe. A questionnaire was designed in order to ensure homogeneity in the format and the content of country reports. Finally, the Group discussed the possible areas of scientific action in a COST future initiative. Two areas are identified: growth and repair processes in the central nervous system, and Neurobiology of cognition and perception. The final version of the Neuroscience Report was produced in May 1996. 1996.
