We are a diverse group of people that are very curious about how a brain inspires behavior, cognition, and reality. Our educational backgrounds vary greatly and we find this to be a splendid property of our club – there are no prerequisites required to appreciate the wonders that the field of neuroscience explores.

We are a diverse group of people united by a curiosity about how a brain inspires behavior, cognition, and reality. Our educational backgrounds vary greatly and we find this to be a splendid property of our club– there are no prerequisites required to appreciate the wonders that the field of neuroscience explores.
We are officially based at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. Our events have the utmost priority of educating our community about neuroscience, including (but certainly not limited to) aspects of mental health, diversity, and how to become involved in the fascinating field of neuroscience. All are welcome to attend our events!
Our club is known for:
* Research in Review, a hybrid science outreach/education effort and public journal club. We compare primary neuroscience research articles to popular media sources and discuss the findings and interpretations of the research as a group.
* Full funding for student tickets to the annual OHSU Brain Awareness Lecture Series.
* Promoting awareness of brain injury and mental health through events highlighting both psychological and biological perspectives.
* Advocating for greater access to neuroscience education for students and public.
