As a member you will not only be supporting research into how the brain and nervous system work, but receive many benefits including the opportunity to put questions to leading neuroscientists today.

Are you a student, clinician, researcher, psychologist, or someone else with a professional interest in neuroscience? Associate membership is not appropriate for those with professional interests in neuroscience, including but not restricted to those studying, teaching, working, or doing research in the neuroscience or related fields of bioscience, or practicing in clinical neurosciences, psychiatry, psychology or related specialties.  If this applies to you, please check out our other membership categories to find the one for you!

Alongside our core benefits, we also offer a range of special member incentives such as competitions, prize draws and discounts throughout the year - please look out for these notifications in the member eBulletin and via our social media channels.
