Knowing Neurons is proud to work with many other science communication and publishing groups!
Since 2012, Aeon has established itself as a unique digital magazine, publishing some of the most profound and provocative thinking on the web. They ask the big questions and find the freshest, most original answers, provided by leading thinkers on science, philosophy, society and the arts. Through their Partnership program, Aeon publishes pieces from university research groups, university presses and other selected cultural organizations. Aeon is committed to big ideas, serious enquiry and a humane worldview. That’s it.
BrainFacts.org is an authoritative source of information about the brain and nervous system for the public. The brain is the most complex biological structure in the known universe. It is a topic rich with exciting new discoveries, continuing profound unknowns, and critical implications for individuals, families, and societies. The site is a public information initiative of The Kavli Foundation, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and the Society for Neuroscience, all leading global nonprofit organizations working to advance brain research. Leading neuroscientists from around the world form the BrainFacts.org editorial board.
MazeEngineers is a central hub for all things related to behavioral neuroscience. Founded by a group of Harvard trained Emergency Medicine physicians, they aim to put a spotlight on behavioral testing as a fundamentally important objective measure to help translate findings from the neuroscience bench to the bedside. The Resources hub answers questions as small as “should I change gloves between subject tests?” to important ones such as “How do I perform a Morris Water Maze test?” MazeEngineers collaborates with hundreds of institutions worldwide each year to merge classical behavioral tests with new technology and bring innovation and excitement to the world of behavioral science.
The Modern Youth Education, Leadership, and Inquiry in Neuroscience (MYELIN) Initiative is a project spearheaded by the International Youth Neuroscience Association (IYNA) and The Synapse Project to produce a comprehensive curriculum for a high school introductory course in neuroscience. The MYELIN team hopes that their curriculum will accelerate the education of the next generation of neuroscientists just as the myelin sheath facilitates impulse conduction along an axon. Their mission is to promote neuroscience education in secondary schools across the globe and encourage students to become the next leaders and inquirers of the neuroscience community. By allowing free access to the curriculum, the MYELIN team wants to encourage all students, regardless of their economic backgrounds, to love neuroscience and in the near future, develop new therapies for debilitating neurological diseases and gain new insight into how the brain works.
PLOS Neuro Community is an online gathering place for current and prospective PLOS authors working in neuroscience and related disciplines. Neuroscience represents one of the most extensive PLOS subject areas, with over 14,000 articles published to date in brain mapping, connectomics and cognitive neuroscience, including pioneering, breakthrough work in each of these areas. PLOS Neuro Community works to provide an informal online avenue for researcher collaboration and discussion of timely neuroscience research.
The field of psychology publishes interesting, important, and potentially life-altering information at a rapid rate, but most research findings rarely reach public awareness. Psychology in Action is an organization formed by UCLA Psychology doctoral students to help ameliorate this issue through scientific communication. They aim to elaborate, connect, and help explain psychological research to community members and other interested parties outside of their field.
Psychology Today is devoted exclusively to everybody's favorite subject: Ourselves. On their site, they have gathered a group of renowned psychologists, academics, psychiatrists and writers to contribute their thoughts and ideas on what makes us tick.
