Postgraduate Cardiff Neuroscience Society (PCNS)
Postgraduate Cardiff Neuroscience Society (PCNS) is specifically for postgraduate students that have a neuroscience interest. It aims to bring neuroscience students across Cardiff closer, both academically and socially and to shed a broader light on neuroscience for the postgraduate community as a whole. The PCNS aims to organise neuroscience cafes every 2 months, discussing contemporary topics in media and neuroscience to bring neuroscience and society together (previous cafe's have discussed consciousness, memory and pathology, upcoming neuroscience cafe's will discuss stem cell research and science & media). These neuroscience cafe's are very informal events and are attend by a large number of both neuroscience and non-science postgraduates. Interspersed with these science cafes we organise social events for the neuroscience community in Cardiff, such as drinks receptions, curry nights, pub visits and possibly movie screening.
Debbie Knight, a 2nd year Neuroscience PhD student in the School of Medicine, and Sonya Bell, a 3rd year Behavioural Neuroscience PhD student in the School of Psychology, are the current chairs of the PCNS steering group. They can be contacted by email - firstname.lastname@example.org and Bellss@cf.ac.uk.
