The Centre has 4 categories of Membership:

    • > Full Members: All staff of Flinders University, and staff of affiliated institutions with academic status at Flinders University, carrying out research in the neurosciences or related clinical disciplines.
    • > Associate Members: Retired staff, researchers in the neurosciences or related clinical disciplines at other institutions.
      > Student Members: Undergraduate or postgraduate students at Flinders University with an interest in the neurosciences.
      > Life Members: Awarded by the CNS to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to neuroscience research at Flinders University.


Centre membership is attained through the completion of the CNS Membership Form.


Once joined, Members receive a weekly emailed newsletter called "NeuroNews", which highlights the events and opportunities available that week. Membership forms are accepted all year round, and once received, the researcher or student gains access to weekly and yearly events, research networks, collaborative frameworks and high-profile speakers. There are also avenues for financial support, for specific research enhancing activities and student development.

Except for Life Members, all forms of Membership are "active", meaning members need to renew their membership every year. This results in a true reflection of interest and participation in the Centre and its activities. Our current membership list is below.
