Gateway to Health: 2019 Annual ANSA Conference & Workshops

The Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia is a membership organization comprised of health professionals from Australia, Australasia and New Zealand who are involved in the promotion of better mental health. ANSA promotes education and professional excellence in the fields of Applied Psychophysiology, Neurotherapy and Nutrition seeking to strengthen acceptance of these disciplines as viable avenues for intervention to promote self-regulation in mental health and well-being.

ANSA members and other professionals interested in applied neuroscience, are cordially invited to participate our annual workshops and conference to be held in Cairns, gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

First Keynote Speakers' Announcement:

Dr. Ronald J. Swatzyna is the Director of Electro-Neurophysiology Research and the Director of Neurotherapy at the Tarnow Center in Houston, Texas. For the past 20 years, Dr. Swatzyna has analyzed and treated the most diagnostically challenging cases in both inpatient and outpatient settings. As a researcher, he has presented and/or published over 60 peer-reviewed papers on brain dysfunction, psychotropic medication and other related topics at national and international conferences. In addition, Dr. Swatzyna is a Special Editor for WebmedCentral plus and Clinical EEG and Neuroscience. Prior to his career in mental health, Dr. Swatzyna served in both the Vietnam and the first Gulf War. Finally, his personal battle with a traumatic brain injury and PTSD has motivated him to become a leading expert in brain dysfunction.

In addition to a keynote address during the conference weekend, Dr Swatzyna will teach two workshops:

1-day Workshop, 22nd August: Mental Health Neurobiomarkers: discovering neurological/physiological causes for symptoms is key for successful treatment.

1-day Workshop, 23rd August: Pharmaco-EEG & Neuromodulation.


Dave Siever graduated in 1978 as an engineering technologist who initially worked to design TMJ Dysfunction related diagnostic equipment and research facilities. Dave had noted anxiety issues in many patients suffering with TMJ dysfunction, prompting him to study biofeedback, which he applied to the patients and then later, Dave design biofeedback devices. In 1984, Dave designed his first audio-visual entrainment (AVE) device – the “Digital Audio-visual Integration Device,” or DAVID1. Through his company, Mind Alive Inc., Dave has been researching and refining AVE technology, specifically for use in relaxation, boosting academic performance and treating anxiety, depression, PMS, ADD, FMS, SAD, pain, cognitive decline and insomnia. Dave also designs Cranio-Electro Stimulation (CES) products and is a leading provider of transcranial DC stimulation (tDCS) and devices. As a result of Dave’s commitment to research, Mind Alive Inc now owns three patents involving neurotechnology. Dave continues to conduct research, perform a quantitative EEG service and designs new products pertaining to enhanced performance and mental wellness.

In addition to a keynote address during the conference weekend, Dave Siever will teach a 2-day workshops:

2-day Workshop, 22nd & 23rd August: Physiology and Clinical Outcomes with Brain Stimulation Technologies>

Audio-visual Entrainment (AVE), Cranio-electro Stimulation (CES) & transcranial DC Stimulation (tDCS).


Martijn Arns graduated in the late 90's as a biological psychologist at Radboud University in Nijmegen. After several research projects in Sydney, Munich and Scotland, he began in 2001 with what is now known as Research Institute Brainclinics. He received his PhD at Utrecht University on the topic of 'EEG-based personalized medicine for ADHD and depression' and is specialized in applying brain imaging techniques to determine appropriate treatment for patients with ADHD and depression. Martijn is specialized in the development and application of neuromodulation techniques such as neurofeedback in the treatment of ADHD. Martijn is director at Research Institute Brainclinics and Psychology Practice Brainclinics, is associated with Utrecht University, department of experimental psychology, and was the founding director of Brainquiry.

Martijn will present twice during the conference weekend:

- a keynote covering the latest state of research on neurofeedback in ADHD including coverage of the results from the NIMH sponsored double-blind placebo controlled neurofeedback study: iCAN: International Collaborative ADHD Neurofeedback Study; and

- a masterclass on EEG based personalised medicine in ADHD and depression where Martijn will review the results from the iSPOT studies and other relevant studies.
