Behavioral Neuroscience Club

About the Organization
The primary purpose of our organization is to connect students who share an interest in the field of neuroscience, and to establish a cerebral environment that fosters open-mindedness and a willingness to learn. Neuroscience has an increasingly relevant relationship with a wide range of other fields, including psychology, computer science, philosophy, and ethics, and this sets the stage for a virtually endless number of interesting questions and discussion topics. Our meetings will consist of student presentations and open-floor discussions, and we also intend to hold field trips and participate in events that will help promote interest in neuroscience. The cultivation of free expression and civil debate are highly valued, and students are encouraged to ask questions and voice any opposing views that may add substance to a discussion. Ultimately, our goal is for students to gain both knowledge and perspective while having fun and developing meaningful relationships.

Behavioral Neuroscience Club meets monthly on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. in TSC 110.

How to Join
Membership is open to anyone who is interested in the field of neuroscience. To join, students should simply attend meetings.
