Welcome to the Texas A&M Chapter of the Society
We are the local chapter representing East and Central
Texas for the Society for Neuroscience.
Who we are:
As residents of the
East-Central Texas and Brazos Valley, we are united by our interest
in the field of neuroscience, encompassing both basic research and
clinical relevance. We strive to remain current with regard
to scientific discoveries, novel treatments and therapeutics
designed for improving the condition of those suffering from
neurological injuries and diseases. Together, we aim to gain
a better insight into the root causes of injuries and diseases,
such as spinal cord injury, autism, Alzheimer’s disease,
Parkinson’s disease, macular degeneration, multiple sclerosis,
epilepsy and many more ailments affecting both humans and animals
A lot of us are faculty members (including physicians and
veterinarians), undergraduate and graduate students,
postdoctoral fellows, and research trainees of various levels
at the Texas A&M University System, who are
actively conducting neuroscience research.
What we do:
Collectively, we aid the facilitation
of collaborative efforts within the Texas A&M University
System, bridging the gap between disciplines and uniting basic
research investigators, clinicians, and veterinarians at local
hospitals and healthcare institutions.
Ultimately, our commitment to the
advancement of neuroscience has an influence on mankind
world-wide. Similarly, we believe in strengthening scientific
understanding within our communities of Brazos Valley and to the
greater East-Central Texas region. As such, we utilize
educational opportunities within our local grade schools and
create public awareness with regard to current
neuroscience research, modern therapies and prevention
In addition to our educational
outreach programs, we collaborate with multiple local
support-groups and professional associations, such as the
Alzheimer’s Association and Multiple Sclerosis organization in
efforts to aid in providing a network of support and guidance for
patients, their families and care takers. Often, the struggle
and effort to keep pushing forward may be daunting to these
patients and their loved ones alike, so we strive to help them make
today better than yesterday.
