Northeast Under/graduate Research Organization for Neuroscience

NEURONThe Northeast Under/graduate Research Organization for Neuroscience (NEURON) is an organization that supports undergraduate and graduate education and research in the northeast region of the United States.

NEURON's Primary Goals:

  • To provide an open forum for neuroscience undergraduate and graduate students to present and discuss their work with students and faculty of similar interests.
  • To provide faculty an opportunity to discuss curricular and research issues in neuroscience, biopsychology and related areas.
  • To provide resources to enhance communication and collaboration among neuroscience researchers and educators.

In order to achieve these goals, NEURON has annual conferences that are focused on enhancing neuroscience training. The annual one-day conference provides a forum for undergraduate and graduate students to present and gain feedback from peers and faculty on the research in which they have engaged during the academic year. Students and faculty participate in workshops that discuss important topical and pipeline issues in neuroscience. Notable neuroscientists are invited to provide the keynote address. The diversity of the agenda provides a well-rounded opportunity for all attendees to engage in rigorous science, while promoting and encouraging the development of neuroscientists in training.
