International Neuroethics Society (INS)

INS is an interdisciplinary group of scholars, scientists, clinicians and other professionals who share an interest in the social, legal, ethical and policy implications of advances in neuroscience.

The late 20th century saw unprecedented progress in the basic sciences of mind and brain and in the treatment of psychiatric and neurologic disorders. Now, in the 21st century, neuroscience plays an expanding role in human life beyond the research lab and clinic.

National Science Communication Institute (nSCI)

The National Science Communication Institute (nSCI) is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit charity.

Their mission is to help improve science collaboration, discovery, education and public policy by reforming the communication culture inside science.

AAAS NeuroPolicy Affinity Group

The AAAS NeuroPolicy Affinity Group consists of AAAS Fellows who are interested in the intersection of neuroscience and policy. This affinity sponsored lectures at the AAAS building in Washington, DC.

Events include: Areas of interesting research with public relevance (health, society, defense) and Areas of policy with neuroscience relevance (funding, perception, ethics).

SfN – Society for Neuroscience

The Society for Neuroscience is the world’s largest organization of scientists and physicians devoted to understanding the brain and nervous system.

This nonprofit organization now has nearly 40,000 members in more than 90 countries and 130 chapters worldwide.

SfN is committed to advancing the understanding of the brain and nervous system by creating venues where great science gets shared, providing professional development for neuroscience professionals, promoting public education and general education in neuroscience research, and informing legislators and other policymakers about new developments.

NeuroEthics Women Leaders

NeuroEthicsWomen (NEW) Leaders aims to continue to cultivate professional networks and skills for women currently in and entering into the field of neuroethics by way of a women in neuroethics network.

The NEW Leaders web site aims to act as a living document reflecting the scholarly work and progress in the field of neuroethics by its NEW Leaders and also serves as a resource for professional development and networking.

Pacific Northwest NeuroNeighborhood

The Pacifiic Northwest NeuroNeighborhood is dedicated to fostering the development of our emerging Neuro-related cluster in the Northwest.

The Northwest NeuroNeighborhood includes the University of Washington, the Allen Institute, Oregon Health & Science University, and 50 companies based in Oregon and Washington. A pilot BRAIN Initiative ‘regional cluster’ this year will bring together the research, clinical, industry, academic, education, public, and advocacy communities around the BRAIN Initiative themes.

Neurotechnology Architecting Network

The Neurotechnology Architecting Network is committing to mentoring and training innovators who will develop new technologies to meet the goals of the BRAIN Initiative:

The Neurotechnology Architecting Network is an open organization of innovators across many for- and non-profit institutions who are developing tools and technologies to reveal how the brain works. This network will aim to create a distributed “neurotech valley” that will disseminate these tools to further both the basic understanding of the brain, as well as its repair.
