The NEURO Club

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

NEURO has been collaborating with The Think Tank, a University of Chicago project which aims to bring science to the streets with its literal neuroscience lab on wheels. The Think Tank project encourages diversity in science: training the new Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Marie Curie of tomorrow!


NEURO & TTT have successfully acquired funding for the Illuminoggin - a glowing brain to be mounted on top of The Think Tank that can be removed and can be used to measure brain activity of those wearing a headset - coming alive with light! Check out NEURO & TTT's pitch for the Illuminoggin below:
