Q: What is the ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function?
A: The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function is an Australia-wide team of brain researchers tackling the challenge of understanding how the human brain interacts with the world. You can find more information about the Centre at brainfunction.edu.au.
Q: How do I get my research paper up on The Brain Dialogue’s Discovery page?
A: If you have a research paper that has acknowledged the Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function, please email Mar Quiroga (email@example.com) for a copy of the research paper form (in editable PDF format). Fill in all the details, including a lay summary for our ‘in a nutshell’ section, and then email it with a compelling image (or images) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The images are important for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they attract attention, and make it more likely that a user will click on your paper to find out more. Secondly, they can help explain or illustrate your finding, or the tools you use in your research. See for example “Working out why some brain regions are more susceptible to Alzheimer’s than others” or “Lopsided Brains”.
We can also post videos that illustrate your work.
This service is currently available to Centre-affiliated researchers only, although that may change.
Q: How do I get my brain-related event up on The Brain Dialogue’s Events page?
A: If you have a conference, public event, workshop, or any other brain-related event that you think would be suitable for The Brain Dialogue’s Events page, please download our events form (in editable PDF format), fill in all the details, including a lay summary of the event, and then email it with a compelling image to us at email@example.com
The image is important to attract attention, and make it more likely that a user will click on your event to find out more.
This service is available for all suitable brain-related events, regardless of whether they are sponsored or run by the Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function.
In a nutshell: By comparing brain activity when individuals are making sounds, anticipating forthcoming sounds or listening to sounds passively, researchers have shown that the same pathways are involved. Read more
