Staying in touch with neuroscience and the BNA

16th Apr 2018

Due to changes in data protection regulation, from now until 24th May we will be contacting you - our members, delegates, customers and others who have interacted with us in the past - to ask if you would like to stay in touch with all our communications in future. 

Choosing ‘yes’ will keep you connected with the neuroscience community and help support the activities we’re involved in to benefit neuroscience and neuroscientists.

Please look out for emails and, if you haven’t done so already, please add to your safe senders’ lists.

How BNA communications will change after 25th May 2018

1. The BNA membership newsletter: the eBulletin

All our members receive a monthly membership newsletter by email, the 'BNA eBulletin'.  This currently contains news about the BNA, meetings, prizes and other activities of interest to our members.

After 25th May the BNA eBulletin will contain just the 'core' news and updates about the BNA. 

To make sure you don't miss out and continue to receive information about bursaries, events, and activities in neuroscience - run by the BNA as well as other organisations such as FENS - you will need to 'opt-in' to the BNA 'All updates' mailing list.  Click here to 'opt-in' to all updates. See below for more information.

(If you are a member and do not wish to recieve the eBulletin, please contact


2. The BNA 'All updates' mailing list

Following 25th May, we will continue to keep you updated with everything in neuroscience using the 'All updates' mailing list. 

Saying 'yes' to receiving all messages from the BNA via this mailing list means you will hear about:

  • Bursaries and prizes (from the BNA and other organisations)
  • Neuroscience research
  • Funding opportunities
  • Events 
  • and many other activities which are relevant to you
You can sign up here to receive all our updates. You needn't be a member, and this mean you will stay in touch with the neuroscience community and all relevant activities and events. 

You can change your mind at any time - see details in our data protection notice.


Changes in data protection regulation

GDPR, or Global Data Protection Regulation, replaces the current Data Protection Act on 25th May 2018. 

GDPR changes how organisations (such as the BNA) handles the information they hold about individuals (such as you - our members, delegates, customers and others who have interacted with us in the past) and how we let you know about activities, events, deadlines, and other news which may be of interest to you.

Because of GDPR we are making these changes in how send communications. 

You always have control over the information we hold about you, and how we use this information to contact you.  See full details in our data protection notice.

If you have any questions, please contact us at
