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.

We would like to remind you that the next CNC meeting of the semester will be held tomorrow (Monday January 26th) night at 7PM in Murphey 202. This is not the room where we met last week, so please don’t go to that one tomorrow night!
This will be the second and final meeting of the “Introduction to Neuroscience” theme, and will be about how to read a scientific paper. This skill has uses beyond the classroom; you will not only need to know how to read a scientific paper as CNC members, but also as undergraduates, graduate or medical students, and as scientists or physicians. A map showing where Murphey hall can be found is shown below.
See everyone tomorrow night in Murphey 202!
CNC meets on a weekly basis on Mondays from 7-8 PM.
