We are graduate students and postdocs working on basic research in the neurosciences at Harvard University. We are excited about neuroscience and hope to convince you - whether you’ve never heard of brains or are a seasoned scientist - that brain research is one of the most fascinating areas of science today. Here are some of our goals:

  • to share our excitement about the brain with the world, and to get people to see how cool neuroscience is
  • to capture what it means to be a working scientist, particularly a  graduate student in the life sciences
  • to give a critical take on current and old ideas in neuroscience, sometimes debunking news media’s wild claims (although we are not a news site)
