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.
Why Neuroscience? August 31, 2015
Hope everyone had a great second week of classes! We will hold our second meeting of the semester tonight, Monday 8/31, at 7:30pm in Coker 201 (the same room as last week). We will be discussing Why Neuroscience: the methods and questions that make neuroscience so fascinating, and the remarkable faculty and resources that make it such a great choice at UNC! In addition, we will have Maire Amlicke tell us about neuro-based outreach. We hope to see you all there!
CNC meets on a weekly basis on Mondays from 7:30-8:30 PM.
