Cognitive Neuroscience Consortium
The Cognitive Neuroscience Consortium highlights interdisciplinary approaches in studies of cognitive processing and brain function through basic and clinical research. Thus, the Consortium focuses on the integration of cognitive science and neuroscience and the complex problems involved in the neurobiological basis of cognitive processes. The Consortium brings together interested participants from the extramural scientific community, NIH program and review staff, and the NIH intramural scientific community. In addition, the group serves as an active forum for the extramural program directors of sponsoring NIH Institutes (NINDS, NIA, NIMH, NIDA and NEI)
to develop cross-institutes initiatives for the advancement of the field of cognitive neuroscience.
Activities of the Consortium are coordinated by the Steering Committee. We host a general meeting (seminar or journal club) every two months on the last Wednesday of the month at 4:15 p.m. and a forum on the last Friday of every third month at 4:15 p.m. This forum is reserved for the planning and implementation of cross-institutes initiatives. Attendance is therefore limited to extramural program directors and their staffs. The consortium leader is Emmeline Edwards.
