We welcome members from all backgrounds, with any level of neural knowledge. Whether you're a fourth year embarking on a neuroscience research project, or an incoming fresher studying modern languages with classics, we all have a brain which can become curious of itself sometimes... that's exactly why you are reading this. Let your brain be curious and join our inclusive and friendly society.
We will explore topics ranging from altered states of conciousness, drug effects on the brain, neurophenomenology, neuroanthropology, the ethics of brain-computer interfaces, dreaming, brain and gut connection, neurogenesis, to whole brain emulation (WBE). We will cater discussion to all levels of knowledge

NeuroNewsletter will be sent out to you on a fortnightly basis to keep you informed on upcoming events, meetings and socials. This will feature photographs from our events, the latest opportunities within the neuroscience field and details of how to get involved, external communications the society has received, minutes of committee meetings, featured research papers with lay summaries (selected and condensed by our committee) and the occasional horrendous neuro-pun!
Proposed 2022/23 Events
NeuroSoc Committee will work hard throughout the month to invite neuro alumni, established professionals in the field, potential employers and neuroscience societies from around the globe together for monthly networking opportunities and a chance to make (synaptic) connections!
Invited by the committee, lecturers from the school of Psychology and Neuroscience, students of Neuroscience and Neurosoc members will take the floor to present a topic in neuroscience of their choosing. After a short presentation, members can engage in open discussion. Good practise for assessed presentations.
Engage with fellow neuroscience enthusiasts at our regular socials! If you don’t study neuroscience, it doesn’t matter! Whether your background is in English or Geography, or even if you just want to meet some new people, we would love to see you there!
Not a risk assessment in sight... Ethics committees around the globe would quiver... TASK: Research and find the most unethical study throughout history that you can, and present your findings to the group. WARNING: Not for the fainthearted!
Please get in touch if you have any questions and follow our social media for regular event updates!
