The Southern Ontario Neuroscience Association (SONA) was founded in 1980. The membership includes all those interested in neuroscience research from molecular and cellular neuroscience, through invertebrate neurobiology to mammalian and human brain and behaviour.

The purpose of the Association is to (1) advance our understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system, (2) bring together neuroscience researchers, both faculty and students from nearby universities, (3) provide opportunity for promotion of neuroscience education, (4) and to provide an opportunity for social contacts among researchers and their students.
