The Society of Applied Neuroscience (SAN) is a Non-profit membership organization devoted to advancing neuroscientific knowledge and its innovative applications by authorizing both scientists and practitioners in serving the public by computing self-regulatory brain function. Its membership is open to scientists and practitioners interested in an integrated approach which involves the neural, cognitive and behavioural levels of analysis. SAN originated as a unit of the International Society for Neuronal Regulation, an U.S. based organization, grew in numbers and turned into the SAN through a membership referendum which also enlarged its scope.
SAN is based in European and open to international membership. Advancing integrative neuroscience, including novel applications such as various neurofeedback (EEG, fMRI, NIRS), autonomic nervous system biofeedback, neuro-rehabilitation, brain-computer interference (BCI), transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), virtual reality feedback, vagus nerve stimulation, electro-cranial stimulaton, audio-visual stimulation, etc. Ehancing education in applied neuroscientific techniques, Enhancing integrative practice in clinical treatment, education and optimal performance, Promoting evidence-based practice to optimise functions in both health and disease and Increasing public knowledge of neuroscientific applications.
