SAN Special Issues in Scientific Journals.

Following the two open meetings at SAN 2011, Thessaloniki, five special issues in neuroscience journals were initiated.

Journal of Neural Engineering.


The first on BCI, based around the workshop organised by Matthias Treder was published online in August in the Journal of Neural Engineering, volume 9, number 4 with 12 manuscripts.

M.S.Treder, 2012, Special section on Gaze-independent Brain-Computer Interface. J Neural Engineering. doi: 10.1088/1741-2560/9/4/040201.

Neuroscience & Biobehavioural Reviews.


The second is in progress with Neuroscience and Biobehavioural Reviews guest co-edited by John Gruzelier, Fabio Babiloni, Dirk de Ridder, Panos Bamidis.  This encompasses theoretical and review contributions with 16 submissions.

Biological Psychology.


A third has been invited by Biological Psychology as a themed issue on Neurofeedback with guest co-editors John Gruzelier and Geert van Boxtel. 18 empirical contributions and commentaries are under review or are to be submitted.

International Journal of Psychophysiology.


A double issue on Applied Neuroscience is underway with the International Journal of Psychophysiology structured around Psychobiology with John Gruzelier, Tomas Ros, Miriam Reiner as guest co-editors and 17 submissions, and structured around Development and Pathology with John Gruzelier, Lynda Pagani and Panos Bamidis as guest co-editors and with  15 submissions.

In the four Elsevier special issues in progress articles are published online on the journal websites following acceptance and ahead of publication of the special issues.

Thanks to all those who participated in various ways, around 200, to make the Society’s third biennial meeting such a splendid occasion. “It was the smoothest running meeting ever attended”, so many said, a fitting accolade to our Greek hosts to whom we express heartfelt thanks. Their warmth infected both the scientific and social programmes which garnered a response of steady commitment (despite touristic temptations) and enthusiasm from participants.  The quality of the science and discussion was both constructive and impressive, as was the calibre of the young scientists (and historians of science), who are the future of our field.
The meeting was important in many ways for the development of the Society. This was the first meeting where the vision of a full breadth of Applied Neuroscience was fulfilled. The 167 presentations allowed 3 tracks:- practitioner, cognitive/affective neuroscience, methodology and basic neuroscience, together with a mixed-theme poster session which ran throughout the conference. Then the previous biennial meetings :- Swansea 2006, Seville 2008, and the training workshop in Dubrovnik 2009 – had been  held in collaboration with the EU COST action B27 Electric Neuronal Oscillations & Cognition (ENOC), which funded a sizeable proportion of attendees. This was the first meeting without such support.
Two open sessions were called on the question of the promotion of our field, the second by popular request. A summary of the initiatives will be reported on the website separately, as will a summary of the Future Directions panel with which the conference ended, and which had finally to be brought to a conclusion having run for an extra hour and having taken up the lunch break, three hours in all. Again contributions and commitment were impressive.
Many initiatives are already underway to include Special Journal Issues, while all abstracts are with Elsevier for publication in Neuroscience Letters. The editors of the Journal of Neurotherapy will also publish abstracts of the Keynote and Invited presentations along with a small selection of oral and poster presentations.
Discussions are ongoing about the 2013 meeting  as well as possible extended symposia in 2012. Under consideration are further collaborative links with other societies, new website plans, while a new website format has already jumped the gun – please note that this website is a work in progress. Nominations for a restructured and extended Council will be circulated in the forthcoming months.
Thanks must also be extended for the emailed expressions of gratitude afterwards, uncustomary when facing the plethora of demands back on one’s home patch.  But to return to Greece, and when might we return (?!!), again our sincere thanks, and concern for a speedy resolution to the current Greek socio-economic tribulations.

  • Israeli Biofeedback and Neurofeedback Association.

    SAN Council welcomes the affiliation of the Israeli Neurofeedback and Biofeedback Society, at the initiative of Dr Anat Barnea, and will collaborate with upcoming workshops on Biofeedback and on Neurofeedback and Quantitative EEG.

  • Polish Neuropsychological Society.

    Following scientific visits at by Juri Kropotov and John Gruzelier to the 14th meeting of the Polish Neuropsychological Society, Krakow, 24/25th October, 2011, at the invitation of the President Maria Paychalska, the Society voted to affiliate with SAN.

Published: Neuroscience Letters, 500, supplement e1 – e54 (July 2011).



Following initiatives at the conference six Special Issues for various
scientific journals are in preparation.

SAN2014 - Call for Abstracts

You are cordially invited to submit your contribution to the Society for Applied Neuroscience (SAN) conference, both papers and poster presentations are welcome.

Each submission must include the following:

  • An abstract (250 word limitation). Abstracts will be published in the conference program materials.
  • A maximum of three educational objectives (excluding poster presentation).

    Each presenter must provide the following:
  • Biographical information including credentials and educational background
  • Disclosure and conflict of interest statement

It should be noted that for each paper submission, at least one author should be registered, in order to be eliglible to present (oral or poster) your work, and to include your work in the conference program materials.

Online submissions must be RECEIVED by December 1st, 2013.

Format Descriptions

Papers (Oral Presentations)

Papers are an interesting way to share new results with your colleagues. Note that the time is limited and that your presentations are supposed to elicit discussion afterwards. Remember, you are the expert. No one in the audience knows as much about your research investigation as you. Therefore, remember to explain your research in enough detail so the audience will understand what you did, how you did it, and what you learned. All paper presenters must register for the conference.

Poster presentations offer an opportunity for clinical and/or scientific presentations in an interactive environment. There is no compensation provided for poster presenters. The presenting author should be listed as first presenter on the author/presenter page. All poster presenters must register for the conference.

Evaluation Criteria for Abstracts

Abstracts should address the following:

  • Background to the study or project (including significance to the field)
  • Purpose of the study or project
  • Theoretical framework
  • Methods used to collect and analyze the data
  • Findings
  • Future implications (general/mental health, policy, education)

A submission is more likely to be accepted if it is original, innovative, and contributes to the scholarly practice of applied neuroscience. Quality of work, clarity and completeness of the submitted materials will be considered. The conference committee receives more proposals than space available. Careful attention to these criteria is likely to increase the chance for acceptance.

Abstract Guidelines

Below you can find the abstract's template for the SAN2014 - Meeting. All authors are pleased to strictly follow the template.

How anti-depressants create brain cell

Scientists have finally discovered how anti-depressants make new brain cells, which could help researchers develop better and more efficient drugs to combat depression.


The study by scientists from the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, show that anti-depressants regulate the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) - a key protein involved in the stress response.
