The Australian Neuroscience Society Inc was established in 1971. It is a non-profit organization of scientists and physicians who study the brain and nervous system and are actively involved in research and teaching. From their website Feb. 2006 "The Australian Neuroscience Society (ANS) was begun in 1971 as an informal collection of Australian neuroscientists. It became a formal society with council in 1980 and was incorporated in the Australian Capital Territory in 1981.
The ANS represents a wide spectrum of Australian neuroscience. The Society currently has over 800 members, and runs the only annual neuroscience-specific scientific meeting in Australia. It regularly consults with its member via email and print bulletins, and elects a representative governing council on a biennial basis. The Society plays an important role allowing communication between government and the Australian neuroscience community. All persons interested in neuroscience are eligible for Ordinary Membership of the Society."
