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.

Please see our braiNY event page for upcoming events for the public in New York City.

Some events such as the NYU Community Brain Fair, Successful Aging and Your Brain, and AMNH Game Night were rescheduled following the Brain Awareness Week snow storm. Updates are available on their  event pages.


Does Brain Awareness Week make you to support science? See our Advocacy Page for more information and resources for communicating with your public officials about the importance of research.

NYC Scientists can also sign up for our event Advocating for Science on April 12 at 6 PM.
