The Society of Applied Neuroscience (SAN) is a nonprofit membership organisation devoted to advancing neuroscientific knowledge and its innovative applications by empowering both scientists and practitioners in serving the public by optimising self-regulatory brain function.

Its membership is open to scientists and practitioners interested in an integrated approach with involves the neural, cognitive and behavioural levels of analysis.

SAN originated as a chapter of the International Society for Neuronal Regulation, an U.S. based organization, grew in numbers and turned into the Society of Applied Neuroscience through a membership referendum which also enlarged its scope. SAN is based in Europe and open to international membership.

SAN is registered in the Norwegian Register Brønnøysundregistrene as Organization Number 984-637-94.
