Neuro Club

Facebook | Twitter | WildCat Connection |

The Northwestern University Neuro Club brings together the diverse set of students interested in any of the numerous fields of Neuroscience. We hope this club will not only inform the Northwestern community of the many facets of Neuroscience but also centralize the resources of both of the Northwestern campuses to give a well-organized structure for an education in Neuroscience. We hope to accomplish these things through events, journal meetings, and other ways.

  • Campus Outreach: hosts events with other student groups and the general student body as a whole to demonstrate the importance of Neuroscience. These events will take place in a variety of ways, including firesides and informal meetings.
  • Curriculum Committee: works with administrators of Northwestern University as a student voice in the formation of an undergraduate Neuroscience major.
  • Journal Committee: meets monthly to discuss papers relevant to members’ interests or neuroscience in popular culture.
  • Speaker Committee: brings in (at least one) speaker from the field of Neuroscience per quarter.
  • Public Relations Committee: publicizes club events and helps recruit committed members who are willing to contribute to the organization.

Neuro Club is open to any student who wishes to join.


At the next club general meeting on Tuesday, May 10th at 6:00pm in Tech LG66, we will be holding a mini research expo! Two executive board members (Tiffany Teng and Michaela Ritz) will be presenting their research, but presentation is open to other members of the club as well! If you work in a lab on campus and would like to present your research contact us at! Otherwise, come to Tech on Tuesday evening to see what research is all about and to get a glimpse at what your fellow neuroscience enthusiasts have been working on!

Our general meetings scheduled to be held on May 24th and May 31st will consist of a neuroscience-related podcast and discussion and a Reading Week de-stressing activity respectively! Both meetings will be at 6:00pm as well, location TBA. Check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates about our upcoming events!
