Our ultimate goal is to create a "neuro-niche" at the University of Arkansas where students can learn and discuss the underlying mechanisms and characteristics of the brain that accompany their formal education.  As an interdisciplinary organization, we welcome all students and majors to join and participate in our special events and monthly meetings.
