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.
09/22/2014 The Politics of Drugs (Week 1 of Your Brain on Drugs)
CNC invites you to attend our first meeting for the theme Your Brain on Drugs! This meeting acts as a bridge between the themes Your Brain on Drugs and Your Brain and Society. The latter theme ends next week with a presentation by Dr. Kelly Giovanello. This meeting focuses on the medical and research opportunities that stem from the changing atmosphere regarding drugs, such as marijuana and its potential uses in the field of medicine. We intend to discuss whether drug policies at the local, state, and federal levels reflect the scientific knowledge about those drugs, and consider what other factors shape these policies. See you there!
CNC meets on a weekly basis on Mondays from 8-9PM.
