About Us

The Institute of Functional Neuroscience (IFN) was founded in Australia in 2008 to inspire hope and enhance humanity through clinical advances in neuroplasticity. We utilise the latest in neuroplasticity and neuroscience research to develop treatment approaches aimed at improving brain and nervous system performance of people with a wide range of conditions including migraines, seizure disorders, strokes, attention deficit disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, developmental coordination delay, vertigo, depression, learning and developmental disorders, concussion syndromes and autism. We are committed to collaborating with world leaders in education and research to ensure that we develop and deliver the finest cutting edge treatment outcomes possible for our patients.


IFN is an interdisciplinary team of dedicated professionals who strive everyday to inspire hope, create expertise and advance humanity in a population of patients that are experiencing unresolved complex neurological dysfunction. The institute is internationally recognized in the application of neuroplastic principals and has clinics in Sydney, Perth, Hong Kong, Canada and China.

The clinical applications we utilize focus on modulating the activity of the brain that in turn changes activity throughout the nervous system. The changes brought about by modulating the activity of the brain are dependent on the natural processes of neural plasticity. Neural plasticity involves activities that are fundamental to the nervous system including learning and functional change. The Institute recognizes and utilises these natural phenomenon to evoke change in targeted functional areas of the nervous system. This is done in order to encourage normalization of nervous system function in neurologic cases that traditionally do not respond satisfactorily to established treatment protocols such as migraines, seizures, depression and anxiety, stroke rehabilitation, post traumatic stress disorders, autism, developmental coordination delay, head injuries and spinal cord trauma.
