Neuroscience for Health Professionals

If you are currently working as a health professional, you may already have ideas as to how neuroscience could be applied to your work, or you may be curious to learn more. We have seen a cultural shift in Neuroscience and Science communication for Health Professionals, transformed by an explosion in technology which has produced a boom in neuroscience research and publications.

ANA’s aim is to help accelerate the translation of valuable research from the lab and peer reviewed journals into practical applications for public health and social care. We aim to become a critical platform for the public communication of neuroscience through the ANA Community and various outreach projects and events, including the up and coming ANA #brainawarenessweek.

So, watch this space and if you’d like to volunteer with us, please do reach out!
