Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience

In September 2020, the CCN launched a new seminar series, Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience. This seminar series is devoted to highlighting innovative, disruptive advances in cognitive neuroscience. Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience also is dedicated to leveraging science as a vehicle for social justice. Through this seminar series we hope to recognize outstanding research conducted by historically underrepresented groups (HURG) in Cognitive Neuroscience and related fields, including women, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and differently-abled individuals. Innovators in Cognitive Neuroscience is a formal collaboration between Dartmouth College, University of Pennsylvania, Yale University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, and Harvard University. It is funded by the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Dartmouth College.

Charitable Causes

We aim to use our platform to advance the larger social justice movement by raising awareness and funding for issues that inform our science and our identities as scientists. To this end, all speakers are given the opportunity to highlight a social justice charity or organization of their choice at the outset of their talk. Below is a compilation of these organizations.
