WHAT IS THIS
Unexplored Neuroscience is an 8 month-long learning community, from 1st of September 2020 to April 2021, dedicated to exploring the unexplored sides of Neuroscience.
This community is open to everyone who has begun exploring Neuroscience & wants to explore more of it.
WHAT WE WILL EXPLORE
Unexplored Neuroscience focuses on building our (i) knowledge, (ii) skills & (iii) community
to fill in the gaps of traditional Neuroscience education, and provide what isn't easily accessible
but extremely valuable for a holistic understanding of Neuroscience.
These are the elements that we focus on exploring:
Exploring the minds of diverse Neuroscientists and uncovering more than what’s published in their papers.
The journey of research is not entirely captured in a journal paper. There’s more to learn from the stories and minds of the people behind the publication.
Discovering alternative & unique paths in the field of Neuroscience.
The application of Neuroscience spans beyond academia, but they aren't always obvious. Exploring these alternative paths can open our minds to the unique applications of Neuroscience and inspire us to go beyond them.
Utilizing Neuroscience research to innovate solutions to important problems.
Neuroscience research has the potential to practically solve important problems that we face. Why not build the ability to be creative and innovate solutions grounded in Neuroscience?
Sharpening your portfolio with skills that are important in and outside of Neuroscience.
Unexplored Neuroscience offers opportunities to explore where your curiosity lies, build on Neuroscience-related skills, and "soft" skills that matter beyond Neuroscience - such as presenting your work.
Building connections by learning with, learning from and sharing with a community of Neuroscience lovers.
The mutual sharing of our knowledge will exponentially speed up our learning process, and create relationships bonded by the desire for inquiry & exploration.
Asking important research questions and ideating methodical ways to answer them.
An important research project begins with identifying the current gaps in the field and coming up with ideas on how to address them. These skills requires a training ground driven by fun and curiosity, free from academic pressure.
Understanding the brain through 8 levels of analysis by exploring 8 different branches of Neuroscience.
Traditional education commonly defaults to teaching one branch of Neuroscience, without the option of exploring others. But, the brain is a multi-level system and the future of Neuroscience is interdisciplinary. Exploring multiple branches will allow us to understand the field more holistically.
