Mission Statement

The Sierra Nevada Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience (SNCSfN) was formed in 2008 by neuroscientists in Nevada. Our interest is to advance the understanding of nervous system and to promote education in the neurosciences. Neuroscientists in Nevada have diverse backgrounds ranging from molecular biology to behavior to clinical specialties. This chapter brings them together by hosting local meetings, facilitating attendance at the annual international Society for Neuroscience meeting, and organizing local educational public outreach activities. Membership is open to all neuroscientists and those with an interest in neuroscience residing in Nevada and in the geographical region of the Sierra Nevada. The chapter is an educational, non-profit organization that is supported by membership dues and local sponsors. It is formally chartered by the Society for Neuroscience.
