Our Mission

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.



Spring 2016

3/21/2016 Dr. Spencer Smith

Hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing spring break! We will be meeting tonight (3/21) at 7:30pm in room 3408 of the Union. Dr. Spencer Smith, from the Department of Cell Bio & Physiology, will be joining us to discuss his research, which includes using advanced optical imaging to study single-neuron and even dendritic activity, and how neuronal population dynamics operates at the single-cell level. Dr. Smith is very accomplished and we are lucky to have him, so we hope everyone can come tonight!
