The Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia (ANSA) is a non-profit professional organization for applied neuroscience in Australia, with members in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

It is established in 2007, following an amalgamation of AAAPB (Australian Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback) and Australian Chapter of the ISNR (International Society for Neuronal Regulation).

Members include clinicians and researchers. They comprise psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, behavioral optometrists, speech therapists, trainers and other professionals who have a university degree, appropriate clinical training as well as registration with their professional board.

The aim of the society is to promote expertise and high standards in the optimization of brain functioning through the application of knowledge in brain science, nutrition, psychology and medicine.

Many members are practitioners or researchers of biofeedback and neurofeedback. Their interests include the non-medication treatment of developmental disorders (e.g. ADHD, dyslexia, learning disorders, behavioural problems), psychiatric disorders, as well as performance improvement for the normal individuals.
