 The new Cortex Club Committee has been confirmed with additional members.  The Cortex Club has established itself as perhaps the premier forum for the discussion of neuroscience in Oxford – not only for students but also for faculty.  They have a fantastic Michaelmas programme and are planning a number of exciting developments working with other neuroscience student groups around the country – watch this space!

The Cortex Club provides the most exciting neuroscience events in Oxford – attracting a fantastic line-up of speakers, sparking lively debate, and bringing together neuroscientists from across the University.
