Aside from their annual meeting, the Society for Neuroscience has created other venues through which great science is shared and public education in neuroscience research is promoted.  The Journal of Neuroscience is the most cited peer-reviewed publication in the field, heralding more than 17,500 editorial pages of emerging neuroscience. provides engaging and inspiring information about the progress and promise of brain research that is suitable for the public, educators, and policymakers.  The Brain Awareness Campaign is a worldwide outreach program that works year-round to bring attention to brain science, which culminates in Brain Awareness Week each March.

This week, Knowing Neurons will be tweeting live from the Neuroscience 2013 using #SfN13!  We encourage you to follow us @KnowingNeurons to hear about exciting happenings from the conference!
