At the heart of CIBF’s education portfolio is our belief that people, be they scientists, students or the public at large, have an inherent desire to understand the human brain.
Our goal is to channel that desire into a life-long interest in the brain, including encouraging adoption of neuroscience as a profession, especially among people who traditionally haven’t been involved.
We will educate and inspire students at all levels, from primary to postdoc, about cognition, cells and synapses, neural circuits and brain systems, models and neurotechnologies.
To do this, we will bring together neuroscientists and students and engage them in age-appropriate active learning. We will also provide publically available online resources including e-books and forums.
In this way, we will foster excellence in research, and promote an understanding of the brain and brain research throughout society.
