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.
