Why be a member? There are many benefits to membership of the Australasian Neuroscience Society. One of the biggest incentives is the substantial discount for attending the Annual Scientific Meeting, to be held in Melbourne in December 2021. For example, a standard ANS membership with an early-bird registration will save $300 compared to non-member registrants, making the $165 membership fee well worthwhile. (And, of course, student memberships are much cheaper still.) There are many other benefits to membership that are listed below and highlighted on our brief membership video (https://youtu.be/Tu4gcFzDrTg). The video gives first-hand accounts of what ANS means to some of its members.

  • Play an active voting role in the peak neuroscience society in Australasia
