Welcome to braiNY and the Greater NYC Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience’s website.  The mission of the Greater New York City Society for Neuroscience is to provide a network and mirrors the parent Society for Neuroscience’s goal of increasing education and public awareness of brain science, and promotion of mentorship/career development for young neuroscientists. The Chapter’s goal is to facilitate partnerships with local institutions and organizations and to produce or co-ordinate city-wide events like Brain Awareness Week.

Thanks to all our braiNY volunteers who made our table at the World Science Festival ULTIMATE SCIENCE SUNDAY so much fun! See pictures of the day on our events page. Find activities to do at home on our resources page.
