Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia

Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia

The Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia (ANSA) is a non-profit professional organization for applied neuroscience in Australia, with members in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

It is established in 2007, following an amalgamation of AAAPB (Australian Assoication of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback) and Australian Chapter of the ISNR (International Society for Neuronal Regulation).

Members include clinicians and researchers. They comprise psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, behavioral optometrists, speech therapists, trainers and other professionals who have a university degree, appropriate clinical training as well as registration with their professional board.

The aim of the society is to promote expertise and high standards in the optimization of brain functioning through the application of knowledge in brain science, nutrition, psychology and medicine.

Many members are practitioners or researchers of biofeedback and neurofeedback. Their interests include the non-medication treatment of developmental disoders (eg. ADHD, dyslexia, learning disorders, behavioural problems), psychiatric disorders, as well as performance improvement for the normal individuals.

The Society maintains a close relationship with related international societies, including the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, International Society for Neurofeedback and Research, and the Biofeedback Foundation of Europe.

It holds an annual Conference, Annual Workshops with invited international speakers, as well as skill training workshops during the year.

International speakers for the 2008 Annual Conference and Workshops will include Donald Moss (USA), Tom Collura (USA), Rien Breteler (Netherlands) and Bo von Scheele (Sweden).
