The purpose of the Carolina Neuroscience Club is to bring together students who share a common interest in the brain and nervous system. As a club, we will discuss courses, research projects, and other programs related to the exciting field of neuroscience. Members will investigate different approaches and technologies useful to learning about the brain. Throughout the year, we will invite professors and graduate students to speak about topics related to neuroscience, and to explain some of the various opportunities available for pursuing neuroscience after college. The club will also collaborate with other neuroscience related organizations to implement service and awareness projects, such as teaching elementary school students about the brain. Furthermore, the Carolina Neuroscience Club shall continue to be at the front of the push for the establishment of a new academic minor in neuroscience here at UNC. The club will be open to members from every department and will serve any student who is interested in learning about the brain and nervous system.
4/22/14: Last Meeting!
Per usual, the meeting will be on Tuesday (April 22nd) at 8PM. Not per usual, it will be at TRU Deli + Wine, which is where we had several of our Executive Officer meetings throughout the semester. During these meetings, we’d provide ourselves with feedback on past weeks’ club meetings to improve those for future weeks, and now we’d like for you to provide us with feedback on this semester’s meetings to improve those for next semester.
TRU, according to one Yelp review, “has a laid back atmosphere and plenty of comfy chairs to encourage chatting with your friends,” which makes it a great location for a meeting, since one of our goals for the club is to create a community for students who share a common interest in the brain and nervous system.
We can’t afford to buy you dinner (it’s fairly inexpensive– sandwiches are around $4 and are DELISH), but we can afford to buy you cookies for desert!
CNC meets on a weekly basis on Tuesdays from 8 PM – 9 PM.
