Curious to learn more about neuroscience straight from the literature, but finding it difficult to get a start? Interested in finding a community of like-minded neuroscience students? This Winter quarter, Grey Matters Journal is launching the UW's first ever undergraduate journal club!

We undergrads know how busy college can be, and we've planned this journal club with you in mind. No prior scientific knowledge is required. You'll never need to have finished reading the paper. This is a judgement-free zone, and we're here to help you. If you are reading this, and want to participate, this journal club is for you, regardless of your educational background.

We meet once every two weeks, on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM PST. Our next meeting will take place on February 23.
