About Us 

Neuroscience Alliance is a Student Organization with a  mission  to promote awareness, research and volunteer opportunities in neuroscience at The University of Central Florida. By encouraging professional relations between students and faculty, students will be provided with opportunities and exposure in current research, potential career paths, and provided with advice and information for a future career in neuroscience. We explore activities and projects related to neuroscience within any area such as medicine, philosophy, psychology, biotechnology, psychiatry, computer science, chemistry, cognitive science, linguistics, mathematics, engineering, and physics.
