The Oxford University Cortex Club was established in May 2009 by a group of Oxford neuroscience DPhil students. The novel seminar format that they designed was extremely successful and the Cortex Club has official university club status under the sponsorship of Zoltán Molnár. The Club is generously supported by the British Neuroscience Association which offers attractive benefits to student members
The new committee plans to continue and even extend the Club’s seminars, networking and public engagement events, which have made the Cortex Club such a success.
