The NEURO Club

The Neuroscience Education, University Research, and Outreach Club at The University of Chicago

Throughout each academic year, the Committee on University Enrichment NEURO plans a lecture series - with the goal of bringing neuroscience to the community at large by having prominent neuroscience researchers from both within the university community and from institutions across the nation. These lectures are span a variety of neuroscience-related fields, including vision & art, neuroeconomics, neuroengineering, and the history of neuroscience.
